Great to see that Chai Vasarhelyi‘s Youssou Ndour doc, “I Bring What I Love,” will be headed to movie theaters next year. Adam Yauch‘s Oscilloscope picked up the film after the Toronto fest. Fans of Peter Gabriel will recognize Ndour distinctive voice, but here he is in the spotlight as he navigates the tricky waters trying to gain acceptance for his “Egypt” album, a personal exploration of his Islamic faith.
Ndour performs at a post-screening concert during this year’s Telluride Film Festival.
