La Sirène De Faso Fani

Since the textile factory Faso Fani in Koudougou, the third-largest city in Burkina Faso, was shut down in 2011, it has been left to rot. Michel Zongo grew up in Koudougou and in his impressive documentary film he visits former employees. Through their eyes and voices the movie tells the tragic tale of globalisation. However, Zongo does not focus on the demise of the town, but portrays an African resistance against the madness of globalisation.
