2022 Oscar-winner for Best Documentary. Summer of Soul is 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, featuring Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly and the Family Stone, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension and more. The footage was never seen and largely forgotten--until now. Summer of Soul stands as a testament to the healing power of music during times of unrest, both past and present.
