Land of upright men

This is a short segment of film on the charismatic leader of Burkina faso, Thomas Sankara. Like all great leaders, Sankara did not live long enough to achieve his dream - a Burkina faso free of foreign aid and french colonialism. Thomas Sankara changed the name of his country from "upper volta" to "Burkina Faso" meaning - "land of upright men".
