don't miss this one
By far one of the best movies I saw at SXSW this year was Youssou N'Dour: I Bring What I Love. I'm happy to report that the film is now showing in New York and will be in limited release elsewhere later this summer. Here's a message about the screenings from N'Dour's Facebook group. If you're around and have any interest whatsoever in Senegal, African music, or the cultural clash between Islam and the west, you really should try to see it.
