Aza kivy (Morning Star)

Andaboy is a sacred beach in southwestern Madagascar. Ancestors say the beach should be left untouched, as a shamanic musician sings in trance. The local fishermen are concerned when Australian company Base Toliara proposes building a harbor there, displacing 8,000 residents. The fishermen were already troubled by Chinese trawlers decimating fish stocks, and now they fear an even worse invasion. To keep up their courage, fisherman Edmond has named his canoe “Aza kivy”: Don’t give up.
