SANKARA IS NOT DEAD

A film by Lucie Viver

After Burkina Faso’s October 2014 popular uprising, the young poet Bikontine decides to go meet his fellow citizens along the country’s only rail line. From South to North, through cities and villages, he learns about their dreams and disappointments, confronting his poetry with the realities of a rapidly shifting society. His journey ultimately reveals the enduring political legacy of one of Burkina Faso’s storied former presidents, Thomas Sankara.
