WFC Burkina Faso: La nuit de la vérité

Some scenes work really well, especially with the children and the women in the village. But a lot of the actors are, like, declaiming at the camera, and it’s a more than a bit awkward.

So I kinda like it, and I admire it, and there’s good stuff in here. But.

The climactic scene was completely mad and original and totally gripping, so there’s that.

The Night of Truth. Fanta Régina Nacro. 2004. Burkina Faso.

Bissap Mojito

  • 6 parts rum
  • 3 parts lime juice
  • 2 parts bissap syrup
  • Sugar to taste

Stir in a glass to dissolve sugar. Add ice.

I couldn’t find any Burkinabe cocktails, so I chose one from a list of recipes from Western Africa.
