Benda Bilili

Directed by Renaud Barret, Florent de La Tullaye.
Starring: Maria Barli Djongo, Renaud Barret and Cubain Kabeya.

Plot: Summer 2009. Four paraplegics and a young able-bodied teenager light up the stage in front of an entranced audience of 8000 people. “Benda Bilili” – in English “See Beyond”, is the name of this Kinshasa band which has acquired a global following. Chances of success were slim at first for these homeless handicapped artists who struggled to survive on the streets of their dilapidated capital. “Benda Bilili” is not a music film, it’s the story of a dream that became reality. And a plunge into the streets of Kinshasa without a safety net.
