Finding Fela in theaters August 2014!

Finding Fela tells the story of Fela Kuti’s life (1938 – 1997), his music, and his social and
political importance. This in-depth look at the man who created Afrobeat (a fusion of Jazz,
traditional West African rhythms, Funk, Highlife, and psychedelic rock) brings audiences close
to Mr. Kuti’s fight against the dictatorial Nigerian government of the 1970s and 80s. With his
audacious music and a great deal of courage, Fela Kuti helped bring a change towards
democracy in Nigeria, promoted Pan Africanist politics to the entire world and became an
inspiration in the global fight for the rights of all oppressed people.
