Femi Kuti, Live at the Shrine
Femi Kuti, son of legendary Fela Kuti, is filmed in his own motherland, Nigeria, in front of his public, assuming his father's heritage. With music, interviews and street scenes, this film remains, above all, the portrait of a man and a people who are fighting. Such a subtle balance between revolt and sensuality creates the charisma of Femi Kuti, as square as his shoulders, and as open and generous as the heart of Africa. Africa Shrine is undoubtedly to be reckoned with as one of the finest visiting cards of 21st century Africa, in full disagreement with the obituaries of the western media.
