Master documentarian Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks) looks at the life, music, and social and political impact of Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, who was immortalized in the Brodway hit "Fela!".

A sweeping portrait of the artist as guerilla warrior, and a testament to the transformative power of music as a force of social and political unification, Finding Fela is the remarkable story of Nigerian superstar Fela Kuti, whose revolutionary Afrobeat sound provided the insistent groove to his courageous stand against a corrupt and dictatorial government.
