Nightbeat Presents Wattstax

1973, Rated R, 98 min. Directed by Mel Stuart.

Kicking off this new season of music-related movies from KOOP, Darkside Daddy and Ear Candy 2.0 host DJ Marc present this very special screening of Mel Stuart’s groundbreaking recording of the monumental Wattstax concert. Described at the time as a soulful expression of the Black experience, it’s not just a concert movie but a chronicle of Black life and culture in Los Angeles in 1972. Don’t forget that soundtrack, with the Staple Singers, Rufus Thomas, Albert King, and Black Moses himself, Isaac Hayes. – Richard Whittaker
