Paul Simon: Under African Skies, a brand new documentary about Paul Simon‘s album, Graceland, is set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival later this month.

The film, directed by Emmy winner Joe Berlinger, will be included in the new edition of Graceland and 25th anniversary box set which is set for release in May.

Paul Simon: Under African Skies covers the making of the Grammy Award winning album and sees Simon traveling to back to South Africa, where he recorded the album with local musicians, including Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and the political and musical implications of his initial journey. The film features interviews with anti-apartheid activists and Quincy Jones, Harry Belafonte, Paul McCartney, David Byrne and Peter Gabriel.
