Burkina Faso, octobre 2014. Ce que beaucoup n’osaient imaginer se produit.
Les Burkinabé mettent fin au règne de Blaise Compaoré. Le rappeur Smockey, membre du Balai Citoyen, est au nombre des artisans du changement, de la victoire d’une utopie sur le réel.
Aujourd’hui, après l’insurrection, après le putsch manqué, l’organisation d’élections libres, les comptes du régime déchu ont-ils été soldés et les attentes comblées?
On a le temps pour nous nous installe dans le quotidien de Smockey, au plus près d’un personnage frondeur et attachant, qui trace un chemin entre activisme et rencontres artistiques ; entre inquiétudes nourries par un présent flottant et espoirs renouvelés.

Burkina Faso, October 2014. What many did not dare to imagine occurs. The Burkinabè end the reign of Blaise Compaore. The rapper Smockey, member of the Balai Citoyen, is among the artisans of the change, of the victory of an utopia over reality.
Today, the uprising, the failed coup, the organization of free elections, are all behind us, but has the price of the fallen regime been paid off, and the expectations fullfiled?
« Time is on our side », brings us into the daily life of Smockey, close encounter with a rebel character who traces a path between activism and artistic work; concerns nourished by a fleeting present and renewed hopes.

Burkina faso, ottobre 2014. Quello che molti non osavano immaginare, accade. I burkinabé mettono fine al regno di Blaise Compaore. Il rapper Smockey, membro del Balai Citoyen, è fra gli artigiani del cambiamento, della vittoria di un’utopia sulla realtà.
Oggi, dopo le rivolte, il colpo di stato fallito, l’organizzazione di elezioni libere, i conti del regime rovesciato sono stati saldati? E le attese, soddisfatte?
On a le temps pour nous ci accompagna nella vita di Smockey, incontro ravvicinato con un carattere ribelle che traccia il percorso fra l’attivismo e il lavoro artistico. Fra inquietudini alimentate da un presente incerto e speranze rinnovate.
