Trailer Of The Week - Week #13

Released in the UK a couple of weeks ago but likely to find a bigger audience when it arrives here on DVD in May, Benda Bilili! is a well-reviewed documentary about a group of disabled and homeless musicians from the streets of The Democratic Republic Of Congo. The French-made documentary tells the apparently amazing story of how the band went from their hard-up roots to underdog stars, eventually recording an album and playing shows in Europe. The trailer mixes in some of the band's inspiring music and hints that this may well be an early shout for one of the best documentaries of the year.

Trailer Of The Week is a regular Film Intel feature which picks a different tasty trailer of delectable goodness every week and presents it on Sunday for your viewing pleasure. Sometimes old, sometimes new, sometimes major, sometimes independent, sometimes brilliant, sometimes a load of old bobbins: always guaranteed to entertain.
