Bute Street Film Night: Finding Fela

An evening of cinema put together by our friends at Bute Street Festival. Films to make you think, laugh, and cry.

Film: Finding Fela! (2014) (15)

Finding Fela tells the story of Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s life, his music, his social and political importance. He created a new musical movement, Afrobeat, using that forum to express his revolutionary political opinions against the dictatorial Nigerian government of the 1970s and 1980s. His influence helped bring a change towards democracy in Nigeria and promoted Pan Africanist politics to the world.

Short film: (to be determined)

Running time: 2 hours

Please note: There will be an interval after the short film and a Q & A after the main film.
