Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi ’00 directed and produced this documentary film that follows the Senegal-born pop artist and humanitarian Youssou N’Dour as he tours at home and abroad. The film focuses on the recording of the singer-songwriter’s 2004 Grammy-winning album Egypt, which featured secular music and songs based on devotional Islamic music — prompting criticism from Sufi leaders for incorporating sacred religious themes into his songs. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times called the film “absorbing.” It is making its way around festivals and theaters this year and next.
