WFC Comoros: جزر القمر

This is an episode of the Duroob documentary series found on Youtube.

I don’t know what country the TV series is from, really. It could be Saudi Arabia, I guess. It starts off oddly, with the presenter giving a speech about Allah’s Infinite Earth; sort of coaxing the audience to care about the documentary.

And then we’re off to Comoros, that tiny island nation between Madagascar and mainland Africa.

It’s a very prefessional documentary: Nicely show and edited and not annoying at all.

But it’s so weird! Normally in documentaries like this you get to see all the sights and the beaches and everything. The majority of this is filmed indoors and we get what seems to be a folk etymology lesson in the Comori (that’s a word) language, and then we learn a bit about grinding make-up.

It’s like they didn’t have permission to film in public or something.

So odd.

But I liked it. It’s interesting and amusing and the presenter is very engaging.
