BACK TO OUAGADOUGOU
For this documentary I followed one of my best friends and his father on a road trip through the desert. After forty years of working in development aid Paul Kleene would take his retreat in Burkina Faso, and not in Europe. So my friend Guido took his father in a minivan with his last belongings from Amsterdam to Ouagadougou, so that he would once and for all have ‘all his shit together’. Back to Ouagadougou turned into a documentary roadmovie about father and son, driving through the fabulous deserts of Algeria and Mali and contemplating on the struggles of life, love and development economics.
