Synopsis:

Fearless documentarian Alex Gibney (WE STEAL SECRETS) turns his lens on celebrated Nigerian musician, activist and Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti. Fela used his complex, sinuous rhythms to political ends, challenging government corruption, establishing his own mini-republic, and standing twice for president despite violent military suppression before his premature death in 1997.Gibney’s doc brings together concert performances, archive footage and reminiscences from Fela’s peers and family to paint a compelling portrait of an incredible man whilst not shying away from his many contradiction s including his complex attitude to women.
