Miriam Makeba, Zenzi Monique Lee, Nelson Lumumba Lee, Hugh Masekela, Angélique Kidjo / Documentary / English, French
An affectionate and hugely enjoyable portrait of singer and political activist Miriam Makeba that'll have you dancing down the street and humming her songs for the rest of the day.
Miriam was born into poverty in a South Africa divided by Apartheid, and music and politics played an equally important role in her life. This absorbing, toe-tapping mix of archive footage and interviews is a fitting tribute to an international star and an extraordinary woman.
