Under African Skies
A film by Joe Berlinger
Paul Simon’s Grammy-winning album Graceland was an immediate hit and lightning rod for controversy when it was released in 1986. South African leaders protested that Simon had broken the cultural boycott of the nation’s oppressively racist apartheid regime.
In the documentary Under African Skies Simon returns to South Africa 25 years after Graceland‘s release. Director Joe Berlinger (Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory) follows Simon as he reunites with his South African collaborators and revisits the controversy the album caused, while luminaries like Oprah Winfrey, Quincy Jones, Lorne Michaels, David Bryne and Sir Paul McCartney share their thoughts on what the album meant to them.
