Why not go and see the film Benda Bilili at Bristol Watershed?

Benda Benlili is a French documentary ( un documentaire)  by Renaud Barret and Florent De la Tullage which takes place in the Congo.
Renaud Barret and Florent De la Tullage met a group of paraplegics ( des paraplégiques) who were playing music in the streets of Kinshasa. They found their music wondeful and offered to help them make a CD. That was just a beginning, the band ( le groupe) now plays in the most prestigious festivals in Europe.
The documentary was filmed between 2004 and 2009 and follows the story of Roger, a small boy living in the streets of Kinshasa, who became a man and a star ( une vedette).
