Questlove's directorial debut plays tonight and tonight only at the MKE Film Festival

SUMMER-OF-SOUL-Sly

The Milwaukee Film Festival is underway and today is the last day! We want to make picking movies it a little easier, so the Cinebuds are going to pick one movie a day that they are excited about. This is today's pick! If you want to buy tickets, or see other movies go here.

Today's pick: Summer of Soul (...Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised)

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. 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.
