An international team of researchers and volunteers from ArCHIAM (University of Liverpool) and the NGO Terrachidia (Spain) conducted restoration work in the most remote oasis of the Draa Valley, at the edge of the Sahara Desert in Morocco. Involving the local community as well as professionals from around the world, the team restored and documented the oasis’s endangered cultural heritage. The film is all about the cultural significance of this place and highlights the synergy of heritage preservation and community empowerment.
