Encounters on the Milky Way 2000 Special Edition
"Encounters on the Milky Way" shows three cattle breeders from Mali and Burkina Faso during their trip to Switzerland where they meet with two dairy farmers from the Swiss Lake District and a cheese manufacturer in the Berne's Oberland. Back in their homeland, they tell their friends and neighbors about their experiences.
This film is neither a chronological document, nor a stringing together of contrasts between the "rich" north and the "poor" south. It is more about discovering common ground. The perceptions of Dicko and Heimberg about what exactly is progress are certainly different, but both being successful agrarian entrepreneurs, they still manage to find a common thread. Heimberg and the bio farmer Hurter are both masters on the capitalistic agrarian market, but differ in the their attitudes toward cattle and cattle breeding. Finally, Hurter and Ly, the African, reason differently about the relationship between men and cows, but are together in the discussion about the soul of the animal.
In "Amadou's Friends" director Jurg Neuenschwander goes on tour with the three Swiss main characters of his film "Encounters on the Milky Way" in West Africa.
