    There are lots of documentary films done on or around the Fespaco, =
    nearly on
    each one.
    The most famous are :

    * Burkina Cinema (Joseph Akouissone, Centrafrique, 1985, 18 minutes) -

    I got this in today. Maybe someone on the listserver can help him.
    Probably it would be best to respond directly to him.
    I know it was done at least once, but I don't remember the name of the
    people that did it. I think it was of the one in 1995 or 1993???

    Greetings from Galway, Ireland,
    I wonder if you could help me.......I've been researching a good deal =
    the FESPACO festival and Burkinabe affairs over the last few years. =
    planning to travel this spring with a skeleton crew to Ouaga to shoot a
    documentary on the Festival. Perhaps you would know has this been done
    before, and if so, by whom, and with what results?
    Please feel free to mail me on this or related topics,
