very engaging & informative film about a song, intellectual property,
copyright law, and a guy struggling to be a “good white South African.”
It’s about “Mbube,” which became “Wimoweh,” which became “The Lion Sleeps Tonight,” and about the daughters of Solomon Linda, the Sowetan who wrote it.
And it’s about Rian Malan (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rian_Malan) who’s the driving force as well as the voiceover, and who spends a fair amount of time on camera.
It starts a little rackety, but it doesn’t take long to grab one by the short hairs.
