Ready, Willing & Able Special Guests at the 20th Annual Philadelphia Film Festival

Ready, Willing & Able

Ready, Willing & Able has been invited to be special guests for the screening of Benda Bilili! on Sunday, October 23 at the 20th Annual Philadelphia Film Festival.

Benda Bilili! - Five paraplegics and a young able-bodied teenager light up the stage in front of an entranced audience of 8000 people. "Benda Bilili" - in English "See Beyond", is the name of this Kinshasa band which has acquired a global following. Chances of success were slim at first for these homeless handicapped artists who struggled to survive on the streets of their dilapidated capital. "Benda Bilili!" is not a music film, it's the story of a dream that became reality. And a plunge into the streets of Kinshasa without a safety net.
