This documentary portrays the revolution driven by Thomas Sankara, former President of Burkina Faso.
From 1983 to 1987, Sankara fought for the political independence of the country, its debt , but also the education of young people, women’s emancipation and the eradication of corruption. This intransigent policy and the escapades of the young , beautiful and brilliant leader make the world tremble powerful and ends in 1987 , the year of his assassination .
For over 25 years , Christophe Cupelin tirelessly collecting written records , audio and audiovisual and managed through a meticulous assembly to paint a portrait of this outstanding revolutionary icon.
