New Fela Kuti Documentary, 'Finding Fela,' Continues What 'FELA!' the Musical Started [TRAILER, TRACKLIST]
Fela Kuti claimed that music was for revolution. But sound being a weapon for real change hasn't been a notion for quite some time down in Africa.
All the better, then, that Kuti's getting some new light shed upon his plight via a new documentary: Finding Fela.
Directed by Academy Award-winner Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Darkside, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room), the film takes a deeper look into a story told by the three-time Tony-winning musical FELA!, which had its Off-Broadway premiere in 2008--recently revived on Broadway in 2012.
