Burkinabè Rising, a new documentary from Cultures of Resistance Films, showcases creative nonviolent resistance in Burkina Faso. A small, landlocked country in West Africa, Burkina Faso is home to a vibrant community of artists and engaged citizens, who provide an example of the type of political change that can be achieved when people come together. It is an inspiration, not only to the rest of Africa but also to the rest of the world.

This film is presented as part of Brooklyn Arts Council Folk Arts' Tradition as Resistance series of public programs, celebrating the work and perseverance of Brooklyn’s traditional and folk artists in a moment of social and political ferment.

Brooklyn Arts Council events and programs are made possible, in part, through public funds from: National Endowment for the Arts; New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council. Major corporate support for BAC Folk Arts is provided by TD Bank.
