“A source of life, that is who I used to be. Defeated, scared and insecure, that is who I have become. I hope it´s not forever. “

The oasis of the Sahel, Lake Chad, is not what it used to be. Since the 1960s Lake Chad has been shrinking to just 10% of its former capacity due to climate change, population growth and irrigation. This has made the 45 million people who rely on its life-sustaining water vulnerable: throughout Niger, Nigeria, Chad and Cameroon 27 million people are currently displaced as a result of the Lake Chad Basin Crisis.
In Nyasha Kadandara´s immersive 360 VR experience LE LAC we step into the lives of Mahamat, a once-wealthy pastoralist, and Nassuri, a refugee-turned-fisherman, as the lake herself hopes for their survival amidst her scattered ponds.
