Synopsis
In his acclaimed debut as a filmmaker, Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson presents a powerful and transporting documentary — part music film, part historical record — created around an epic event that celebrated Black history, culture and fashion. Over the course of six weeks in the summer of 1969, just one hundred miles south of Woodstock, The Harlem Cultural Festival was filmed in Mount Morris Park (now Marcus Garvey Park). The footage was largely forgotten — until now. SUMMER OF SOUL shines a light on the importance of history to our spiritual well-being and stands as a testament to the healing power of music during times of unrest, both past and present. The feature includes concert performances by Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly & the Family Stone, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension and more.

Pour ses débuts acclamés en tant que cinéaste, Ahmir « Questlove » Thompson présente un documentaire percutant et électrisant - à la fols film musical et témoignage historique - commémorant un événement épique qui célébrait l'histoire des Noirs, leur culture et leur mode. Durant six semaines de l'été 1969, à tout juste 160 kilomètres de Woodstock, le Harlem Cultural Festival fut filmé au parc Mount Morris (devenu depuis le parc Marcus Garvey). Ces Images tombèrent presque complètement dans l’oubli... Jusqu'à aujourd’hui. L'ÉTÉ DE LA SOUL rappelle l'Importance de l'histoire sur notre bien-être spirituel et témoigne du pouvoir et des bienfaits de la musique durant une période tourmentée, aussi bien passée que présente. Ce long métrage comprend des performances en concert de Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly & the Family Stone, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension et davantage.
