CAPTAIN THOMAS SANKARA

Christophe Cupelin

“I therefore want to speak in the name of all abandoned people because I am a man and nothing of what is human is foreign to me”. A portrait composed of archives of Thomas Sankara, president of Burkina Faso between 1983 and his murder in 1987. Ready to liberate his country and transform the mentalities of his fellow citizens, contesting the world’s political order and challenging the powers of his time, Sankara stands out strongly in the history both of Africa and of the world.
