Malian singer Boubacar Traoré fashioned himself after Elvis in the late 1950s, when he sang of freedom and political resistance in his home land. Then, both his life and his country's struggles spiraled into tragedy, leaving him somewhere between myth and obscurity for two decades before a British music producer searched him out and helped revive his career. With a generous serving of music, fantastic black and white photos and newsreels, and vibrantly filmed footage of modern-day Mali, director Jacques Sarasin tracks Traoré's journey in this hypnotically beautiful film. – L.A.
