Fela Kuti :: Music Is The Weapon (Documentary, 1982)

Clocking in at an incredibly potent 53 minutes, Music Is The Weapon was shot in Lagos in 1982 chronicling the Nigerian juggernaut that was Fela Kuti. Helmed by French director/cinematographer Jean-Jacques Flori, the film surrounds itself with the interchangeable music/politics that was Kuti's orbit. A weapon, indeed.
