The 81-year-old is documented, by Academy Award-winning director Alex Gibney, in the studio making his latest album, Seven Psalms, which also includes a duet with his wife of 30 years, Edie Brickell. The film naturally reflects on his 60-plus years in the business, which began in school when he linked up with Art Garfunkel to become the legendary duo behind such classics as The Sound of Silence and Mrs. Robinson. Simon went on to enormous solo success with his ground-breaking Graceland album, for which he travelled to South Africa to work with musicians like Ladysmith Black Mambazo, ignoring the cultural boycott against the apartheid country.
