Synopsis

Teacher Don't Teach Me Nonsense: A huge influence on world music, Nigerian artist Fela Kuti played many instruments, pioneered Afrobeat music and served as a prominent activist for human rights in Africa. This 1984 documentary examines the life and music of the remarkable man. Using his music to raise awareness, Kuti embraced social justice themes. He died in 1997 of complications from AIDS. Footage from his legendary show in Glastonbury, England, is included. (59 minutes) Berliner Jazztage '78: Originally broadcast on German and Nigerian television, Berliner Jazztage '78 (1978) is some of the best live footage of Fela Kuti ever captured on film. As a headliner of the prestigious German music festival, Fela takes the stage with Afrika '70 and captures the hearts of the audience with a raucous, high-energy, exciting musical performance.
