  • Description: In 1974, the most celebrated American R&B acts of the time came together with the
    most renowned musical groups in Africa for a 12-hour, three-night long concert held in
    Kinshasa, Zaire. The dream-child of Hugh Masekela and Stewart Levine, this music
    festival became a reality when they convinced boxing promoter Don King to combine
    the event with The Rumble in the Jungle, the epic fight between Muhammad Ali and
    George Foreman, previously chronicled in the Academy Award-winning documentary

    SOUL POWER is a verité documentary about this legendary music festival (dubbed
    Zaire 74), and it depicts the experiences and performances of such musical
    luminaries as James Brown, BB King, Bill Withers, Celia Cruz, among a host of others.
    At the peak of their talents and the height of their careers, these artists were inspired by
    this return to their African roots, as well as the enthusiasm of the Zairian audience, to
    give the performances of their lives. The concert has achieved mythological
    significance as the definitive Africa(n)-American musical event of the 20th Century.

    SOUL POWER is crafted from the extensive outtakes that remained after making
    WHEN WE WERE KINGS, which documented the epic title fight, but relegated the
    music festival to a small, supporting role. The outtakes have remained vaulted for the
    past 34 years, until now. The film was ultimately edited down from over 125 hours
    worth of footage. Lensed primarily by celebrated cinematographers Albert Maysles,
    Paul Goldsmith, Kevin Keating and Roderick Young, SOUL POWER finally provides
    todays audience the opportunity to experience this historic musical event in all of its
    magnificent, filmed glory.
