About the Artist

    FREE EVENT FOR THE COMMUNITY! PLEASE CALL THE BOX OFFICE AT 203.438.5795 TO RESERVE YOUR SEAT.

    The exclusive content for Summer of Soul, sponsored by People’s United Band, will consist of an interview with Grammy Award winner Florence LaRue, original member and lead vocalist of The 5th Dimension, led by entertainment reporter Cheryl Washington and can be seen following the screening in the theater or on our YouTube channel after the screening date.

    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 & the Pips, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension and more.

    SUMMER OF SOUL premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won both the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award. It is streaming on Hulu in conjunction with Disney General Entertainment’s Onyx Collective; Searchlight Pictures released it theatrically.
