BURKINABÈ RISING - Official Trailer
In partnership with filmmaker Lara Lee The Bioscope independent cinema in Maboneng presents this special screening of the new documentary film Burkinabè Rising, followed by a post-screening discussion with the director.

Burkinabè Rising is a documentary film that looks at the inspirational movement of creative nonviolent resistance in Burkina Faso. Through music, film, ecology, visual art, and architecture, the creative community of artists and engaged citizens in this small landlocked West African country have successfully kept up a spirit of resistance that has forced political change. After assuming the presidency of Burkina Faso in 1983, Thomas Sankara was killed in a 1987 coup d'état led by his friend and close advisor Blaise Compaoré, who subsequently ruled the country as an autocrat for twenty-seven years. In October 2014 a massive popular insurrection led to his removal.
