A HOUSE FOR DEMOCRACY

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.
