Christoph Schlingensief, the German film, theatre and opera director had a vision for an opera village in Africa. Despite cancer, he made trips to Burkina Faso, such was his devotion and conviction. Crackle of Time tells the story of the impossible project: to build an opera village in Burkina Faso, a space combining art and life, with a school, theatre, hospital, living quarters, a football field, and a lunchroom.
