Shadow Distribution is proud to present the U.S. theatrical release of YOUSSOU
N'DOUR: I BRING WHAT I LOVE, a music-infused cinematic journey about the power
of one man's voice to inspire change. The film chronicles Africa's pop sensation
Youssou N'dour, a devout Muslim, as he releases his most personal and
controversial album called Egypt in the hope of promoting a tolerant face of
Islam. While the record received international acclaim and a Grammy, it was
denounced as blasphemy in his native Senegal. Director Chai Vasarhelyi follows
Youssou N'dour for over two years -- filming in Africa, Europe, and America --
to tell the story of how he faces these challenges and eventually wins over
audiences both at home and abroad. (102 min./PG/35mm/In English, French, Arabic,
Wolof with English subtitles)
YOUSSOU N'DOUR: I BRING WHAT I LOVE has won multiple awards worldwide including
the Circle Audience Award - Film Fest DC, Impact of Music Award - Nashville Film
Festival, Special Jury Prize - Middle East International Film Festival, Audience
Award and Spirit of Freedom Award - Bahamas International Film Festival.
"A singer with a voice so extraordinary that the history of Africa seems locked
inside it." - Rolling Stone
"A stirring story of an artist and a hero." - NBC/Reel Talk
"A beautiful meditation on faith, Islam and music." - The Huffington Post
