In late 2012, Tanzanian media reported that centenarian singer and national cultural icon Bi Kidude had been kidnapped by a relative who claimed that longtime musical and business associates were mistreating her. British filmmaker Andy Jones, who examined Kidude's mythic life in the documentary As Old As My Tongue (screening with this film), returned to Zanzibar to investigate. A doc thriller with a deep emotional core, I Shot Bi Kidude chronicles the strange final months of a music legend while telling how a white filmmaker from England's West Midlands forged an abiding bond with Africa's oldest singer.
