Abstract:

In August 1983, Captain Thomas Sankara seizes power in the former French colony of Upper Volta. He is helped by a commando led by his friend Blaise Compaore. Contrary to precedent attempts, Sankara's coup d'etat has revolutionary objectives of Marxist inspiration: end the neocolonial hold of France on the county, favor the equality of opportunity and the education of the masses and launch an economic reform based in the rurality of the country. Dissidences appear, and four years after the beginning of the August Revolution, he is assassinated. While the inhabitants of Burkina-Faso continue to live with the memory of a failed revolution, the documentary reveals the price of the country's stability: no democratic change, no access to the wealth of the country, and no real independence from the former colonial power of France.
