The Gold Of Faso (2015)

11 Nov

Filmmaker: Dragoss Ouedraogo

Burkina Faso | 2015 | Documentary | 62 minutes

Since 2009, Burkina Faso knows a situation of “mining boom” after a campaign of geological exploration and an incitement of foreigner investments. But thanks to a favourable mining code and a discriminatory legislation, this “mining boom” looks like a huge operation of looting the resources of the country, enriching the managers of this network and droping the populations loosing their grounds.

The Gold of Faso does not shine for every body and the anger grows.
