Lauryn Hill To Narrate Documentary For Sundance Film Festival


Lauryn Hill is lending her voice to The Sundance Film Festival. The singer/ rapper will narrate the documentary Concerning Violence for the event, which takes place between Jan. 16 to 26, by Swedish filmmaker Göran Hugo Olsson, which focuses on the struggles faced during the African liberation during the 1960s and ’70s.

Since being released from her three-month prison stint for tax evasion in October, the “Neurotic Society” has gotten right back to her music and being a voice for human rights.

Along with her contribution to the Olsson’s visual narrative, Hill is set to headline at Amnesty International’s first Human Rights Concert since 1998 on Feb. 5 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, according to Rolling Stone.

Hill is also said to be working on a new album, Letters From Exile, which will be released through her label Obverse Creation Music. The Fugees frontwoman is currently scheduled to continue her “Homecoming ” tour in Huntington, New York on Jan. 26.

Concerning Violence is set to have its first public screening at Sundance on Friday, Jan. 17 at 3 p.m. at the Yarrow Hotel Theater as part of the World Documentary program.
