It's a great film, worth the price of admission. A must see for anyone who wants to see the sights of Africa. I agree with the other reviewer who said that this film was hard to watch. I don't think so. The scenes were extremely realistic. I agree with him that the film was very educational. I hope that someone can find this film in a DVD rental store near you. I think it's a good investment of time and money to see the sights of Africa. A must see!

I think this is one of the best documentary ever made. The movie is definitely worth watching. It tells the story of a boy who has lost his parents and his home to a natural disaster. His friend, who was with him when he was a child, comes to visit him at his old home, and the story unfolds. This movie is also very touching and emotional. The movie has many great songs and amazing visuals. It also has some amazing performances by actors like Aboubakar and Aboubakar's mother. This is a must watch movie.

The film covers a wide variety of events from the years of the civil war to the 1970's. The footage is used in a clever way, showing how different countries reacted to the events of the civil war. The film also covers some of the more famous musicians that were involved in the music scene during this time period. It also includes some of the people that were involved in the music scene during this time period, including The Beach Boys, James Brown, Sonny Boy Williamson, Jimmy Cagney, George Clinton, Jimmy Carter, and James Brown.

An outstanding documentary about the world of South Africa. The viewer gets a really good look at the various stages of apartheid and how the white minority (governments) used the system to keep the black majority under control. The film is divided into four chapters. Chapter one tells about the first steps taken by the black majority to establish their own government. The story begins with the creation of the "Blacks Commission" and the consequent legal action and the subsequent protests. The second chapter looks at the process of the transition of power from the white minority to the black majority. The story is told in a documentary style and the film is well directed. The third chapter covers the transition of power from the white minority to the black majority and the struggle for full civil rights. The fourth chapter covers the struggle for equality and the struggle for a fair deal for the black minority. The viewer gets a good look at the various institutions that made up the apartheid system and how the white minority was able to maintain its control. The film is a good example of a documentary and a must see.

I've been a fan of Dj Paul Petelos for a long time. I'm not too familiar with his other music, but this documentary is his best work to date. It is a highly informative and well-made documentary, that will be shown in my school and community as well. It is extremely well done and very informative, it will leave you with a new understanding of Dj Paul's music. It is a true story, but not a happy one. It is an inspirational story, and Dj Paul has done an incredible job with it. This documentary has been a very good decision, and it is well worth the watch. I would recommend this documentary to anyone, and I can't wait for the DVD! I will definitely be buying it when it comes out.

This documentary is a fascinating insight into the life of legendary jazz musician and activist Quincy Jones. While he was alive, he was a passionate advocate for the rights of the African American community and a tireless advocate for equality and civil rights. This documentary takes us through his life and career in the music business and shows the dedication he showed to his community and his beliefs. I loved this film. It is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen.

This is a fantastic documentary on the life of a band. The film is a great listen to with music from their early days to the more recent work. The music is very well put together and works well together. The documentary is very well edited and shows the highs and lows of the band and their fans. The interviews are great, and the music is excellent. The film is a must see for all music lovers.

The life of the legendary Motown band is brought to life in a documentary that chronicles their rise and fall from grace in a single season. The film follows the band members through their experiences, and the story is told with many interviews and stills of the band performing in front of thousands of people. It's an amazing look at a time when rock 'n' roll was at its peak, and the album Motown compilation "Songs in the Key of Life" was the top selling album of the decade. The film shows how the group's career was turned upside down after they failed to sign a major label record deal, and their fans were left with the same "I've seen the light" feeling they had in the 60's and 70's. The band's career ended up in a downward spiral after the album was released, and the next album was not as successful. The film also looks at the "race riots" that broke out in the streets of the city of Detroit following the release of "Songs in the Key of Life." Many people were arrested and charged with rioting, but most were acquitted. They were accused of being racist and inciting violence, but the case was later thrown out due to the lack of evidence. It was also later revealed that Motown manager Berry Gordy had been secretly meeting with white supremacists to discuss the release of Motown's album "Unchained Melody," which was never released. It was also later revealed that Gordy had been living in Africa during the time of the riots, and he was not only hiding out in his home, but he was also using a slave driver to move his possessions around the country. Motown's manager and co-founder Berry Gordy was sentenced to prison in 1975 for eight years for his role in the riots, and he died of a heart attack in 1983. The film ends with a performance of "I've Seen the Light" at the very end of the tour, which is actually the only Motown album they have released on DVD. If you're a fan of Motown, or the band itself, then you should definitely check out this film.

As a student of jazz, I was interested in seeing the historical background of this wonderful musical, but I didn't know where to start. This film made me appreciate the music, the people, and the era. I will always love this movie.

This documentary was very informative. Although I had never heard of the band, I was able to appreciate the importance of the songs in the film. The performances were great and the story of the band was very interesting. The band members really lived the music and their personalities were very entertaining. This documentary is definitely one to watch.

It's been a long time since I've watched a documentary that is as good as this. From the music to the amazing story behind the film. The best part is that it's not a documentary, it's an "uncut" film that has not been edited or edited out. It's a true story and I love that about it. The story behind the music is incredible and I think everyone should watch it. It's also a great story of how far music has come and how far it will go. You can feel the energy in the music and it's incredible. I can't wait for this film to come out on DVD. It is a must see. The music is incredible and it's a true story. A must watch.

I first saw this film on a flight from Paris to New York on October 6, 1975. The plane was full of people and it was quiet. I had no idea what I was about to see. I was really impressed by the film and by the live performance of the band. The music was excellent. I thought the songs were outstanding. The movie was in French and the audience was made up of mainly French-speaking people. The film was beautiful, and the music was the most important thing. The music was very good and in the middle of the movie, the orchestra came on and began to play one of the songs. The music was not only beautiful, it was also very powerful. It was beautiful and powerful. I had to turn it off. It was almost over. I had never seen a movie with so many things happening and nothing was happening. There was no story. There was no direction. The movie was very good and I recommend it to anyone who likes the music. The director of this movie was Francoise Guillou, who is the best French-speaking actress in France. I give this movie a 10. It is the best movie I have ever seen.
