Cleveland International Film Festival: Burkinabè Rising
April 8, 2018 @ 1:20 pm - 3:00 pm
CCWA is excited to be a community partner for the Cleveland International Film Festival documentary Burkinabè Rising.
Burkina Faso is a small landlocked country in West Africa whose literal name translates to “the land of upright men.” Despite the country’s history of political, social, and economic crisis, Burkina Faso is on the rise. The growth the country has experienced in recent years is largely due to the grassroots efforts of artists, ecologists, and activists, who have come together to tell their stories and create change. The Burkinabè are a resilient and united people of many different tribes and backgrounds, with a rich and dynamic culture. The people have used numerous forms of art as outlets for self-expression and peaceful protest, both in times of hardship and celebration. BURKINABÈ RISING is an uplifting documentary that explores the multitudes of artists who make up the incredible nonviolent resistance movement in Burkina Faso. Bright and moving, this film will inspire you to make a creative difference, wherever you are in the world.
