Youssou N’dour: I Bring What I Love

A film by Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi
Starring Youssou N'Dour, Peter Gabriel, Moustapha Mbaye

“Fans and newcomers to N’dour’s music will be equally enthralled by the finely observed, patiently wrought documentary.” —Wade Major, Boxoffice Magazine

Director Chai Vasarhelyi in person for a post-film Q & A at 7:20 shows on Friday and Saturday.

Senegalese pop sensation Youssou N’dour has spent the last 20 years in the spotlight as a world-renowned musician and the iconic representative “voice of Africa.” At the height of his career, Youssou became frustrated by the negative perception of his Muslim faith and composed Egypt, a deeply spiritual album dedicated to a more tolerant view of Islam. The album’s brave musical message was wholeheartedly embraced by Western audiences but ignited serious religious controversy in his homeland of Senegal. The film chronicles the difficult journey Youssou must undertake to assume his true calling.
