Sundance Review: Summer of Soul (... Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised)
Ahmir Khalib Thompson, better known as Questlove, has always been a multihyphenate of hip-hop and Black pop culture at large. In his filmmaking debut film, which memorializes the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival, the rapper-producer-DJ-instrumentalist-journalist puts all of that perspective to work.
