Burkina Faso: A Filmmaker’s Quest
Movies tell you so much about a culture - its values, its shared experiences, its aspirations. But most African countries are struggling to develop their own film industries. We take you now to Burkina Faso, where one man has devoted his life to telling his country's stories through cinema.

Colombia: Wayuu “Gold”
Colombia - it's home to a bounty of one of the world's most precious resources. Yet not all Colombians are getting their fair share. We travel to a remote corner of the country where an extraordinary woman is fighting for her community's very survival.
