SUMMER OF SOUL (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised)

Winner of both the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the debut documentary showcases director Questlove’s (of The Roots) passion for music history as he investigates the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival’s place in history. Highly attended and featuring incredible performances from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight and the Pips and Sly and the Family Stone (just to name a few), the festival itself stands as a watershed moment that fell into obscurity for reasons that are just as meaningful today as they were back then.

Geoblocked to Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware Only.
