Alishia takes over the vandalized presidential palace in Bobo Dioulasso with 100% made in Burkina Faso organic style. Power to the people!
Plastic bags permeate the atmosphere, creeping like an ominous, uncontrollable force through Ouagadougou while children work and play - Wabinlé Nabié's film illustrates this like a visual poem.
Rage of the People
In 2014, the people across Burkina Faso refused to allow the president of 27 years to change the constitution to run for president again. This film documents the preparations in Bobo Dioulasso, the cultural center of Burkina, that led up to the insurrection that sent Blaise Campaore out of office. Frederique Lagny captures the behind the scenes discussions and eloquent debates that organized a people to stand up for their rights.
The title plays on the words water and help. Water and electricity is scarce in Burkina Faso, and the shortages are far worse for the poorest neighborhoods, often obliging people to wait in line all night to get their rations for the day. In this touching film, Wabinlé Nabié, shows how the people in these neighborhoods cope with such injustice with surprisingly good humor and resilience.
Nils Nusens & friends
When Nils ads his funky juices to the mix the sound is inevitably groovy as he plays with excellent musicians from the intersecting worlds of afro, jazz and funk.
