Summer of Soul (2021) - IMDb

Floris Bauer
Feb 23

A frontrunner to win this year's Oscar for best documentary, Summer of Soul is an enthralling film about the 1969 Harlem Cultural festival, also dubbed "Black Woodstock".

With pulsing live music footage of Nina Simone, Sly and Family Stone, Mahalia Jackson, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder and many other greats, this doc will leave you inspired and in awe of the healing power of music. And - like me - you might even find yourself dancing in front of the TV.

As the Guardian perhaps put it best: "Director Questlove's feature debut intertwines music and politics in one of the best concert movies of all time".
