Questlove's compelling documentary is part music film, part historical recording of an epic event that celebrated black culture.

Musician Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson makes his debut as a filmmaker with a powerful and compelling documentary: Summer of Soul. The documentary is a music film, but it also features historical footage created around an epic event that celebrated black history, culture and fashion. For six weeks in the summer of 1969, just 160 kilometres south of Woodstock, the Harlem Cultural Festival was filmed in Mount Morris Park (now Marcus Garvey Park). After that summer, the footage was never seen or shown again - until now.

Summer of Soul highlights the importance of history to our spiritual wellbeing and is a testament to the healing power of music in times of turmoil, both past and present. The film features never-seen-before concert performances by B.B. King, Nina Simone, Sly & The Family Stone, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Stevie Wonder and others.
