Symon, Robyn. Behind the Blue Veil. Los Angeles: Symon Productions Inc, 2013. HD, 62 min.

The Tuareg people of the Sahara Desert are one of the world’s last truly nomadic tribes. But their way of life is now under greater threat than ever before, from economic exploitation, from environmental catastrophe, from the scorn of their own government, from Islamist militants, and perhaps most of all from the relentless march of modernity. This revealing film documents the remaining fragments of Tuareg culture and examines a people’s struggle for survival from a variety of perspectives. (Source: Journeyman Pictures)
