THE PUPPETS’ CEMETERY (Directed by Elena Molina) **
In Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, a highly strong-minded independent woman who makes her living as a hairdresser, pig farmer, musician and more insists that she learn puppetry from a man who is a master. They retrieve old objects, including puppet remains and turn things into puppets.
A short 14-minute film that does not give the entire story or show for that matter. But it speaks loads about hope and creativity and the power of imagination.
