Sydney 2012: Day 3 Trailer of the Day - UNDER AFRICAN SKIES

My pick for today's Sydney Film Festival trailer of the day is Under African Skies, which focuses on Paul Simon's seminal album Graceland. 

About Under African Skies: Paul Simon returns to South Africa to reunite with the musicians, including Ladysmith Black Mambazo, who collaborated on his mega-hit Graceland. The album's 1986 release put Simon in the eye of a storm of controversy for breaking the UN cultural boycott of the South African Apartheid regime. Prize-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger (Metallica: Some Kind of Monster and the Paradise Lost trilogy) follows Simon to South Africa for the album's 25th-anniversary celebrations, where he confronts his critics - including Artists United Against Apartheid founder Dali Tambo - and defends his appropriation of African music. 

Embedded below is the trailer.

    Should be interesting to see.
