Acclaimed documentarian Alex Gibney's 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.

The power and potency of Fela’s message is completely current today and is expressed in the political movements of oppressed people, embracing Fela’s music and message in their struggle for freedom.
