"In August 1983, Captain Thomas Sankara seizes power in the former French colony of Upper Volta. He is helped by a commando led by his friend Blaise Compaoré. Contrary to precedent attempts, Sankara's coup d'etat has revolutionary objectives of Marxist inspiration: end the neocolonial hold of France on the country, favor the equality of opportunity and the education of the masses and launch an economic reform based in the rurality of the country. Four years after the beginning of the August Revolution, he is assassinated. While the inhabitants of Burkina-Faso continue to live with the memory of a failed revolution, the documentary reveals the price of the country's stability: no democratic change, no access to the wealth of the country and no real independence from the former colonial power of France."--Distributor's website

Hard old rock( Visual )

"As a young man, Zheng was a wild boy; he'd rather spend his time gambling and dancing than studying. But his exuberant way of life came to an end when, during the Cultural Revolution, he was charged with counter-revolutionary behavior and sent to prison. Now, he lives in the boarding house of Shuanglin Town, and is a silent witness to the last chapter of his own lonely life. This intimate and respectful portrait of a striking 83-year-old Chinese citizen offers us an inside view into the way China treats its seniors and gives us the opportunity to better understand China's contemporary history. But above all, it introduces us to a remarkable sensitive witness of last century's turmoils, as remembered by an old Chinaman."--Container

On the 28 February 1986, Olof Palme, Sweden's social democratic Prime Minister, was shot dead as he was walking home from the cinema which he had attended with his wife. 20 years on and still there are no answers, only theories. Although there seem to have been several witnesses who saw men with walkie-talkies in the vicinity on the night in question, the Swedish police force seems to have closed ranks.

Some witnesses, even today, are still afraid to speak out. The official conclusion is that a lone perpetrator shot Palme, and from 2011 that's how it will remain, as further lines of inquiry will then close
