“Both a tribute to the artists and, just as importantly, their audience - which is what makes it not just a great concert film but a great documentary, period.” - David Fear, Rolling Stone

“The documentary of the decade.” - Charlotte O'Sullivan, London Evening Standard

July 5 & 29 | Held in the summer of 1969, The Harlem Cultural Festival - headlined by Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly & the Family Stone and Gladys Knight & the Pips - was a celebration of Black voices, culture and fashion. Largely forgotten until now, this Oscar winning documentary stands as a testament to the healing power of music during times of unrest, both past and present.
