Summary
Fela Anikulapo Kuti was the creator of Afrobeat music; he was prolific as both a composer and a performer. He also fought political corruption in his country, for which he and his family suffered harrassment and violence. In this documentary Fela transmits to the camera his thoughts on politics, panafricanism, music and religion. The film includes previously unpublished versions of ITT, Army Arrangement, Power Show, and Authority Stealing ("live" at The Shrine nightclub)
