The Golden Wolf of Balolé

In the heart of Ouagadougou, a granite quarry where nearly 2,500 people, adults and children, work in poor conditions, on the sidelines of a society that refuses to see them. But in 2014, the revolution passed by and blew on the spirits, a wind of emancipation and hope. And now the miners are considering a better future by freeing themselves from the yoke of intermediaries to sell directly the fruit of their work. The film is a dive into the life of these miners, in the unexpected tenderness as well as in the depth of soul and reflection of which they prove themselves.
