cinema documentary in development

After the revolution in the West African country of Burkina Faso and the burning down of the parliament house in 2014, the population demanded a democratic state after decades of dictatorship. The German-Burkinabé architect Francis Kéré was part of the revolution, who successfully fought with like-minded musicians, philosophers, artists and activists for the removal of the incumbent president. Today the country is deeply divided, searching for its own identity and a democracy made in Africa. Francis Kéré was given the task to plan a new parliament, A HOUSE FOR DEMOCRACY.
A film about an architectural and social vision.
