Creatively acrobatic and politically profound this gem underscores the blatant lies and greed that multinational gold companies extol in the small town of Kalsaka

Synopsis

Since the dawn of time, the people of Kalsaka, a small village in the African country of Burkina Faso, have lived off the gold provided by their local mine.

All of this ended with the arrival of a multinational mining corporation, which expropriated local landowners and exploited the natural resources, leaving the local people with nothing. NO GOLD FOR KALSAKA - PAS D'OR POUR KALSAKA follows the main protagonist, Jean-Baptiste, in a community that is trying to survive and claim back its dignity, as it battles the injustices inflicted upon it.
