Devil's Pie - D'Angelo

Director: Carine Bijlsma
Intimate, touching and surprising portrait of one of the most mysterious figures of the contemporary music scene. D'Angelo obtained an unequalled status within the neo-soul movement.
Portrait of musical legend D'Angelo during the tour of his albumBlack Messiah. The soul musician and superstar previously disappeared from public life for over a decade due to a spiritual crisis. Via interviews with D'Angelo and other big names, plus archive footage that was never shown before, an impression emerges of who this performer really is. A man who grew up in his grandparents’ church in poor Virginia and had to cope with the temptations of the music industry. A remarkable life story of a brilliant musician, who happens to be a world-famous star, too.
