Belgian Premiere 

Synopsis : 


In the heart of Ouagadougou, a granite quarry where nearly 2,500 people, adults and children, work in Dantesque conditions, on the fringes of a society that refuses to see them.

But in 2014, the revolution passed through there and blew people’s minds and gave them hope and courage.

And now the miners envisage a better future by freeing themselves from the yoke of middlemen to sell the fruit of their labour directly. The film is a plunge into the life of these miners, into the unexpected tenderness as much as into the depth of soul and reflection they show.


Screening followed by a discussion and Q&A (35min) :


Speaker: Chloé Aïcha Boro (director)
