SUMMER OF SOUL (2021) – AFI Movie Club

“SUMMER OF SOUL (…OR, WHEN THE REVOLUTION COULD NOT BE TELEVISED) takes the stage at a time when its message matters most. Transporting audiences back to the Harlem Cultural Festival of 1969, with footage previously thought lost to history, Questlove turns back time and welcomes all into the embrace of a joyful, life-affirming event. This sublime and urgently necessary documentary blends music, memory, culture, community and, ultimately, the vibrant amplification of Black voices – beamed from the past to serve as catalysts for those who look to the future today.” -The American Film Institute, AFI AWARDS 2021
