Eye of the Storm

Sekou Traoré

Unreleased

In an African country at war, a lawyer is appointed by the court to defend a rebel charged with war crimes... This Burkina Faso film efficiently obeys the rules of the legal thriller, yet Sekou Traoré transcends the genre, championed by the likes of Sidney Lumet and André Cayatte. Genre conventions are subverted by an incisive examination of fanaticism and how it is exploited for political ends.

Flagey, Cinematek

24.04 - 20:00 - Film + debate with Guido Convents, President of the Afrika Filmfestival
