Under African Skies by Gareth MorganFrom the contrasts of Cape Town to the litter drifts of Libya, Joanne and Gareth Morgan and their team of World by Bikers rode 20,000 kilometers by motorcycle.
They rode over rough roads and smooth, through rich nations and poor, past ruins ancient and modern, and loved every minute of it. They saw a true zebra crossing (along with several thousand of its mates). They were charged by elephants (and charged double by Egyptians). They had a gander at Uganda (and a wander in Rwanda). They dodged guerillas (and hung out with gorillas). They were in for a shock (or four) on Kenyas road to hell...
Join the World by Bikers on their unforgettable four-month traverse of Africa. Hold on tight and brace yourself for one hell of a ride: part road-trip, part expedition to discover the truth inside the appeal envelopes of the international aid industry.
Sundance: Paul Simon doc 'Under African Skies' -- EXCLUSIVE TRAILER
Music, politics and race: To what degree does a style belong to the people who developed it? At what point, if any, does musical fusion become musical theft? Is the greater good served by a noble project if it involves the flouting of solemn rules? And once the rules have changed, and the noise has died down, how much do these debates really matter? As Mr.
The recording process, the lyrics and the distinctive sound become, in a sense, effective talking points. But more interesting is the fly-on-the-wall view of the creative process itself, thanks to footage of the recording sessions when Simon first traveled to Johannesburg in and months later when he brought the musicians to New York and London as he was finishing the album. The result is a gripping conversation that brings some measure of closure if not resolution. The sense that Simon was content to let the cards fall where they may can be felt throughout the film, particularly as it becomes clear just how hurt by the criticism he remains. Certainly the musician is given plenty of room to make his case, but the opposition is as well, primarily through the erudite arguments made by Tambo. There is a good deal of historical context woven in, much of it coming from news footage of the time.
Thanks to Snag Films, the Emmy-nominated documentary Under African Skies is now available to stream for free. The film showcases interviews with Quincy Jones, Harry Belafonte, David Byrne and Paul McCartney. Under African Skies, which was directed by Joe Berlinger, retraces.
