FULL DESCRIPTION

In 2012, Bi Kidude, fast-talking, chain-smoking, rebel-rocker and the oldest performer on the world music stage, was kidnapped at a reported age of 102. Award winning director Andy Jones, returns to Zanzibar to investigate. This intensely personal journey reflects on the life and death of a legend, and sees the director embroiled in the mystery of her last days on earth. I Shot Bi Kidude feels both familiar and exotic. Part love story, part drama, and part reflection on the enduring impact of fame and film, it is a reminder to people everywhere to do what makes us happy, while we can.
