„Soul Power“ ist wohl der wichtigste Film für Funk Soul Brothers in diesem Jahr!

1974 unternahm die gesamte US Soul-Elite einen „Betriebsausflug nach Kinshasa, Zaire, um dort im Rahmen des „Rumble in the Jungle“ Boxkampfs zwischen Muhammad Ali und George Foreman beim Musik-Festival „Zaire ’74“ zusammen mit afrikanischen Top Acts zu rocken.

„Zaire ’74“ (auch „African Woodstock“ genannt) lief über 3 Tage. Mit am Start gewesen sind neben  dem Godfather of Soul, James Brown und dem Godfather of Blues, B. B. King u.a. Bill Withers, The  Spinners und Miriam Makeba und Afrisa.

Bei der Dokumentation „Soul Power“ von Jeffrey Levy-Hinte steht im Gegensatz zu „When We Were Kings“ die Musik im Vordergrund.

Soul Power has been crafted from the extensive footage which remained after the making of When We Were Kings, which famously documented the epic title fight, but only briefly touched upon the Zaire „™74 music festival. This footage has remained vaulted for the past 35 years, unused, unseen, until now. Lensed primarily by celebrated cinematographers Albert Maysles (Gimme Shelter, Grey Gardens), Paul Goldsmith (Rust Never Sleeps), Kevin Keating (Harlan County USA), and Roderick Young (Wattstax), Soul Power finally provides today“™s audience the opportunity to experience this historic musical event in all of its magnificent, filmed glory, restored in HD and with incredible sound quality. An unbridled musical journey for the ages.

„Soul Power“ Trailer mit einem Godfather of Soul voll im Saft:

Ob und wann der „Soul Power“ in den deutschen Kinos startet, konnte ich bisher leider nicht ergooglen, aber noch vor Weihnachten 2009 soll der Film auch als DVD und Blu-ray veröffentlicht werden. Um sachdienliche Hinweise wird daher gebeten!
