Hasaki Ya Suda (The Three Black Samurai)
Heavily influenced by samurai films from film makers such as Akira Kurosawa, filmaker Cédric Ido produced a short award winning film, Hasaki Ya Suda (The Three Black Samurai) set in the future. Joining the trend of films and projects that explore AfroFuturism, the film is a great exploration of the mixing of genres, culture and language. Hailing from Burkina Faso, Cedric ido is set to produce more feature films for Focus Features Africa and is set to join other reputable African film makers. Brilliant short film, indeed!
