Time is on our side

Katy Léna Ndiaye

Burkina Faso, October 2014. What many had not dared to imagine happened. The people of Burkina Faso put an end to the reign of Blaise Compaoré. Rapper Smockey, a member of Balai Citoyen, is one of the architects of this change, of the victory of utopia over reality.

Today, after the insurrection, the failed putsch and the organization of free elections, have the accounts of the deposed regime been settled and expectations fulfilled?

'Time is on our side' takes us into Smockey's day-to-day life, up close and personal with a rebellious, endearing character who traces a path between activism and artistic encounters; between concerns fed by a floating present and renewed hopes.
