Boucle En Onde
Documentary, Women’s Issues, Activism, Radio
BoucleEnOnde is a journey through the female world of the Boucle du Mouhoun in Burkina Faso. Music and words from Radio Fréquence Espoir trace a portrait of women and their world, steeped in traditions but with the desire to look ahead.
Irene and Abdoul work at Radio Fréquence Espoir and carry on a shared project: to contribute to the development of their people through a participatory communication strategy.
Irene addresses the issue of the female condition, her objectives: to facilitate women’s access to information, training and communication to acquire knowledge and autonomy.
Abdoul is the youngest on the radio, his activities are aimed at Peulhs breeders, his ethnicity, among the most resistant to changes; women are those who suffer most from this condition.
In a land that suffers from structural poverty, a condition not only due to a resources issue but also to a question of cultural deficiencies, theirs is a model of resistance, of building an ideal world, where information becomes the access key to development, while the news reports tell a complicated reality made up of conflicts outside the country.
