¨Cuba in Africa¨ documentary to receive honored Thomas Sankara Award

Havana, Mar 7 (Prensa Latina) The Cuba in Africa documentary, by Ethiopian-American filmmaker Negash Abdurahman, won the Thomas Sankara Award at one of the most-prestigious African film festivals.

Many film lovers got excited, Abdurahman told Prensa Latina, while referring to the film participation in the Ouagadougou Pan-African Film and Television Festival (FESPACO) in Burkina Faso.

It´s critical to show the story about Cuba´s unprecedented and heroic contribution in fighting off colonialism and apartheid in Southern Africa, Abdurahman stressed.

Cuba sacrificed its sons and daughters to bring freedom to millions of Africans’, the documentary maker said.

Rahmatou Keita, FESPACO´s President, claimed that ‘this pearl (documentary) was the one that came closest to all criteria to win the Thomas Sankara Award’.
