Youssou N’Dour: I Bring What I Love
Directed by: Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi
Friday, June 12 - Thursday, June 18, 2009
Ends Thursday! The bestselling African pop musician of all time, Youssou N’Dour was named one of Time’s 100 most influential people and called “the rare rock star whose music matters.” In 2005, he produced his most personal album, Egypt, which presented his Islamic faith as peaceable and tolerant. But while the record won international acclaim, it was also denounced as blasphemous. Filmed over three years and featuring original music by N’Dour, this intimate portrait follows the artist on tour abroad and at home in Senegal as he wins back his public.
