Funk Embassy Presents: Summer Of Soul

Funk Embassy invites you to join us in Sõprus Cinema on Monday, 1st of November, to watch the documentary “Summer Of Soul”. Following the film, ambassador Henrik Ehte will be joined by Heidy Purga (DJ, Must Mesi) and Robert Linna (Lexsoul Dancemachine) for a discussion. Tickets HERE.

“Summer Of Soul (…Or, When The Revolution Could Not Be Televised)” is a feature documentary about the legendary 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival which celebrated African American music and culture, and promoted Black pride and unity. Part music film, part historical record created around an epic event that celebrated Black history, culture and fashion. Over the course of six weeks in the summer of 1969, just one hundred miles south of Woodstock, The Harlem Cultural Festival was filmed in Mount Morris Park (now Marcus Garvey Park). The footage was never seen and largely forgotten-until now. 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. The feature includes never-before-seen concert performances by Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly and the Family Stone, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension and more.
