Directed by Renaud Barret and Florent de Tulluya
Benda Bilili! premiered to standing ovations at Cannes last year. The film follows the band of self-taught Congolese musicians, four of them paraplegics, from the streets of Kinshasa to the stages of various international music festivals. French filmmakers Barret and de la Tullaya first encountered Staff Benda Bilili in 2004 and developed a remarkable relationship with its members over five years, filming them as their music developed—and their success grew. 2010, 35mm, 85 minutes.
