Capital of African cinema
by Markus Lundgren - 3 years, 11 months ago
Because of the expansion of Al Quaeda in the Islamic Maghreb much of Sahel has become off limits. Fortunately Burkina Faso is still an exception, and the laid back capital Ouagadougou a perfect example of the guest friendly and positive burkanibe. The film festival in Ouagadougou has become a pilgrim event for people interested in African cinema. A good way to see the town is to rent a motorcycle taxi for the day and make the stops you are interested in, since the town is quite spread out.
