The Upright Women
The legacy of Thomas Sankara defines a moving portrait of West African women in the past and present. Politically charged, the stunning Cinéma Vérité intertwines with the archival treasures and life biopic of Sankara while the majestic backdrop of present-day Burkina Faso is discovered through the homecoming journey of 'Sylvie', a young Burkinabe woman from the village of Banfora.
