Summer of Soul

4pm : Sunday 14 November

Summer of Soul (… Or When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised) by Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson will inspire our programme through its testimony of a unique moment in history, the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival, and the transformative power of culture and music.

Presented at Silver Screen Cinema Folkestone.

“Utilising beautifully restored footage buried in a basement for 50 years, Summer Of Soul (…Or, When The Revolution Could Not Be Televised) vividly paints a picture of the Harlem Cultural Festival, often referred to as the ‘Black Woodstock’, as the event the establishment just didn’t want to happen.” ★★★★★ – Empire
