Great film, with lots of back stage footage. I enjoyed seeing Muhammad Ali the way he used to be, and all the music acts were really on top of their game. "The Click Song" was fantastic.

In 1974, I was hired during the festival as a security guard. My friend and I were graduated from High School (college Elikya) in Kinshasa. We were unemployed, waiting to start at the University when one of our fiend told us the Organisers of the festival were hiring students.We spent the 3 night of the festival on the stage, just behind the musicians. We spent time with some of the celebrities such as Hugh Masekela, James brown, Miriam Makeba, Manu Dibangu, Celia Cruz etc. it was incredible.
