Burundi, officially the Republic of Burundi, is a landlocked country in the Great Rift Valley where the African Great Lakes region and East Africa converge.
Burundi traditionally had two official languages: Kirundi and French. English became the third official language of the country in 2014.
The racing cyclists of Burundi have a dangerous job. But it’s a vital one for Burundi’s economy. Bicycles are the main means of transportation in one of the smallest countries in Africa.
Bananas, the staple food in Burundi, are transported from the markets to a banana beer brewing factory.
This documentary follows Tharcien, a bike courier, on his exhausting cross country trip on the Burundi Highway.
