Documentary: "Under African Skies"

There was a small op-ed in today's New York Times about a forthcoming documentary entitled Under African Skies, which looks into the making of Paul Simon's Graceland 25 years after its release. I've shared, albeit briefly, here before my love for this album and the impact it made on my childhood. It is, I think, my all-time favorite album because of its abstract themes, poeticism, and its placement as one of the singular musical works I muse upon when I think about my youth and my mother. It's a perfect summertime album as well. I look forward to seeing this documentary.
