Benda Bilili!

DISABILITY AND ART

Benda Bilili!

Ricky has a dream: he wants to make his group, Staff Benda Bilili, the best in Kinshasa (Congo). Roger, a street boy, wants to join these stars from the ghetto, who, handicapped by polio, get around on tricycles specially designed for them. Together, they must manage obstacles in the street, keep close ranks and draw strength and hope from their music. Benda bilili! (“see beyond”) accompanies them for five years, from the moment they make their first record until their triumphant European concert tour. This is the story of a dream come true.
