In the summer of 1969, 100 miles from Woodstock, the Harlem Cultural Festival drew 300,000 to hear the biggest names in soul, gospel, and blues. Footage from the festival sat unseen in a basement for 50 years, until now. Amir "Questlove" Thompson documents the event in "Summer of Soul (...Or, When The Revolution Could Not Be Televised)," winner of the Audience and Grand Jury prize for U.S. Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival.
