About the Film:

This is the loud, thumping, urgent story of Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s life, music, and social and political importance. Fela birthed a new musical movement called Afrobeat and used it to declare revolutionary political opinions against the dictatorial Nigerian government of the 1970s and 1980s. He helped shift Nigeria toward democracy and promote Pan Africanism to the world.
