Finding Fela
Finding Fela tells the story of Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s life, his music, his social and political importance. He created a new musical movement, Afrobeat, using that forum to express his revolutionary political opinions against the dictatorial Nigerian government of the 1970s and 1980s. His influence helped bring a change towards democracy in Nigeria and promoted Pan Africanist politics to the world. The power and potency of Fela’s message is completely current today and is expressed in the political movements of oppressed people, embracing Fela’s music and message in their struggle for freedom.Finding Fela was directed by the Academy Award winning director, Alex Gibney.

Spirituality and Practice: "A poignant documentary about the great Nigerian singer and songwriter whose music speaks out for justice."

New York Daily News: There's nothing like seeing Fela himself -- blowing his sax, expressing his unbridled sexuality and live a life like no other."

The Guardian: "Finding Fela does an exemplary job of explaining in musical terms, what made Fela stand out, a simple enough step that most music documentaries ignore."

Pantani: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist
In 1998 Marco Pantani, the most flamboyant and popular cyclist of his era, won both the Tour de France and Giro d'Italia - a titanic feat of physical and mental endurance that no rider has repeated since. He was a hero to millions - the saviour of cycling following the doping scandals which threatened to destroy the sport. However, less than six years later, aged just 34, he died alone, in a cheap Italian hotel room. Pantani: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist explores the startling truth behind one man's remarkable descent from being amongst the finest athletes on earth to his tragic end in a sport riven by intrigue. 

The film boasts an 81% positive rating on RottenTomatoes.com.

Total Film: "Essential watching, even for anyone who can't stand the sport.

Financial Times: "Partani's ebullience and delight in his own talent always come through. He still commands the sort of respect Lance Armstrong can ony dream of."

This is London: "The sense you get of this man is that he was trying to heal his own wounds by winning."
