    1. "[An] enlightening documentary....UNDER AFRICAN SKIES is as much about the experience of making 'Graceland' as it is about cultural politics." (New York Times - , 05/11/2012)
    2. 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Powered by Simon's brilliance, UNDER AFRICAN SKIES is a cultural lightning bolt that soars on its music and an unshakable belief in the transcendence of art." (Rolling Stone - , 05/10/2012)
    3. "Joe Berlinger's film follows Simon to South Africa for a reunion of the musicians who made the album."" (Uncut - , 07/01/2012)
