Event

Paul Bogle & Thomas Sankara
CATCH A FIRE tells the story of Deacon Paul Bogle, often described as a 19th century Malcom X. 30 years after the end of slavery in Jamaica, the Morant Bay Rebellion of 1865 provoked outrage in Victorian Britain shaping race and land attitudes. The story is constructed using extensive interviews with Paul Bogle's grand son as well as archive material. (1995, 30min, Jamaica/UK, Menelik Shabazz, Dir.)


CAPTAIN THOMAS SANKARA was the leader of the Burkinabe Revolution. In the former Upper Volta known today as Burkina Faso, a group of men decided to launch a revolution that would enable the country "to accept the responsibility of its reality and its destiny with human dignity." Thomas Sankara belongs to the group of African leaders who wanted to give the continent in general and their countries in particular a new socio-political dimension. (1991, 26min, Democratic Republic of Congo, Balufu Bakupa Kanyinda, Dir.)
