Summer of Soul (...Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised)

Review

Rediscovered after 50 years, this is a restoration of a filmed musical festival in Harlem, in 1969. It combines music, politics and history but celebrates what it means to be black. Set at the same time Woodstock, this is such an interesting series of concerts that were forgotten to history. Focusing on the black audience and musicians, it was interesting to see how well this was captured at the time.
