| Burn it up Djassa / Le djassa a pris feu
Filmed in the Abidjan neighborhood of Wassakara, only a few months before the Ivorian civil war broke out, Burn It Up Djassa is a labor of love. Lonesome Solo’s Burn It Up Djassa’s has remarkable staying power and, despite of the dark tenor of the story, brims with hope.
A raw, noir-tinged urban legend set to the cadence of slam poetry and the beat of street dance, Burn It Up Djassa signals the arrival of an exciting new artistic movement from Africa's Ivory Coast.
“Bringing Cinema back to the streets has never felt more real.”
