Burkinabè Rising, le nouveau documentaire du réseau ‘Cultures de la Résistance,’ réalisé par Iara Lee, présente la resistance créative, non violente au Burkina Faso. Petit pays enclavé au coeur de l’Afrique de l’Ouest, le Burkina Faso est un foyer pour la communauté d’artistes et de citoyens engagés, et offre un exemple de changement politique réalisé lorsque les gens s’unissent. Le Burkina Faso est une inspiration, non pas seulement pour toute l’Afrique, mais aussi pour le reste du monde.

A travers la musique, le cinéma, l’écologie, l’art visuel, l’architecture, les personnes présentés dans ce film perpétuent l’esprit révolutionnaire de Thomas Sankara. Après avoir assumé la présidence en 1983, Sankara a été tué par son meilleur ami et associé, Blaise Campaore, qui reprit la présidence lors de son coup d’état en 1987 et resta au pouvoir pour vingt-sept années, jusqu’en Octobre 2014, quand une massive insurrection populaire amena à sa destitution. Aujourd’hui, l’esprit de résistance est plus puissant que jamais au Burkina Faso et cet esprit se voit dans chaque aspect de la vie quotidienne burkinabè.
