My death doesn't belong to me

// My death doesn't belong to me

In Burkina Faso, where many religions coexist and interconfessional marriage is quite common, funerals are often disputed. Charles-Auguste remembers the quarrels over his father's burial and comes to imagine what would his own funeral look like.Muslims, Christians and Animists successively explain what ceremonial they will have in store for him when his time comes. But Charles-Auguste is a hedonist and expresses quite extravagant funeral wishes.

In coproduction with Les Films du Dromadaire (Burkina Faso)
With the support of CNC and Procirep-Angoa

Selection : Docs Afriques (Paris)/Saint-Louis Documentary Film Festival (Sénégal)/Afrique en Docs (Lille)/Docs Afrique Paris/Vues d'Afrique Montreal, Encounters South African International Documentary Festival, Etats Généraux du Documentaire Lussas
