My Friend Fela

Fri 13 March 2020

We regret this event has been cancelled.

My Friend Fela provides a new perspective on the acclaimed Nigerian musician Fela Kuti.

As the documentary unfolds, it reveals the many influences and forces that shaped Fela's extraordinary life: from the relationship he had with his mother to his many, problematic relationships with women, to his mutually influential encounters with seminal African-American figures. The resulting film is both a portrait of a remarkable man and a tribute to the Pan-African generation.

Directed by Joel Zito Araújo Brazil 2019 • 94 min • Digital • English and French with English Subtitles • Documentary • Certificate: 15
