Take a break from the repitition of summer's CGI-packed blockbusters and treat yourself to a cultural screening of Academy/Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney's new documentary. Finding Fela spans the life and career of dynamic music icon Fela Kuti, whom we can now thank for the colorful genre of Afrobeat. Don't miss the 2-hour cinematic spectacle as makes its way around the US, stopping at LA's Nuart Theater for a week-long residency in August.
