I caught the film a couple of years back, and it's a great portrait of an talented artist and activist finding his roots and trying to give back to his community. Great film, plus a concert. And best of all, the whole damn thing is free. Cool way to spend a summer night. For more event info, go to the JACCC website here. For more information on Kiwi, go to his website here.
