@being There's a chapter on Burkina Faso cinema in this book.

Often referred to as Africa’s Hollywood–Burkina Faso, ranked by the UN as the third poorest country in the world (2005), is considered a kind of role model for sub-Saharan African cinema.

Interesting article on French colonial legacy in Africa, the CFA franc (franc de la Communauté Financièr Africaine) and efforts to rid themselves of it by four West African countries.
Historically, France has always sabotaged previous such attempts, by coups or financial shenanigans. This time, the attempt may succeed.

It's presumably up for debate whether leaders who took power unconstitutionally in coups even have the legal power to serve withdrawal notice to ECOWAS. Of course, the military juntas are ignoring their own country's laws anyway. But...
