My Friend Fela (2019)

01/26/2019 (ZA) Documentary 1h 34m

Unlike any previous narrative about the Nigerian musical genius Fela Kuti

Overview

Most often portrayed as an eccentric African pop idol of the ghetto, Fela is rarely presented as the strong political leader he was. Through the eyes his close friend and official biographer, the African-Cuban intellectual Carlos Moore, this documentary is devoted to unravel the complexity of Fela’s life. As the story unfolds, it reveals the glories and tragedies that shaped the lives of the pan-African generation as well as Fela's.
