“Finding Fela” – Aug 17th

Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Aug 17th at 4:40 pm for Finding Fela at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Brian F. wearing a Gonzaga t-shirt in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.

Bursting with the magnetic personality and irresistible Afrobeat music of Nigerian superstar Fela Kuti, Finding Fela tells the story of his remarkable music and life, social and political impact, and lasting legacy.

Also featuring Bill T. Jones and scenes from the hit Broadway show Fela! Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks, The Armstrong Lie).
