A superb film on the life and music of one of South Africa's finest musicians, Abdullah Ibrahim. Following Ibrahim's vivid stories, the film moves between New York and Cape Town, mixing documentary with dramatized episodes. Its form mirrors the non linear, narrative circular of Ibrahim's musical composition, juxtaposing qualities that seem contradictory but evoke the complexity and diversity of his sources. Conceived in close collaboration with Ibrahim, It throbs with anticipation and skillfully describes provocative cultural history of the Cape, through the eyes of the country's fines musician.
