Capitaine Thomas Sankara: the trailer for the new documentary

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.

I have not got to see the movie yet, as the distribution is limited. But I will keep you posted as it becomes available on VOD.
