A small town in Burkina Faso: A society that lives in the rhythm of heartbeats creating their future. Knowing how to love one another, anywhere in Africa – this also means recognising our own love through a mirror. “Focused on pictures of a heartless continent and reducing the people to anonymous and underfed silhouettes with flatulent looking bellies as the media tend to present the African people, one forgets that there are millions of beating hearts which swing exactly the same like everywhere in the world.” (Africultures)
