Thomas Sankara led a revolution in Burkina Faso from 1983 until he was assassinated in 1987. President of the poor, spokesman for the marginalized, non-conformist revolutionary, his fame has spread far and wide. Christophe Cupelin has edited archive material to produce this ironic and flamboyant reflection on the fate of one of Africa’s most important 20th century leaders.
