Soul Power (2009)
Soul Power Synopsis
This verité documentary about the legendary music festival “Zaire ‘74,” depicts the experiences and performances of such musical luminaries as James Brown, BB King, Bill Withers, and Celia Cruz. The film is crafted from the extensive “outtakes” that remained after making WHEN WE WERE KINGS, which chronicled the epic title fight between Mohammad Ali and George Foreman, but relegated the music festival to a small, supporting role. "Soul Power" finally provides today’s audience the opportunity to experience this historic musical event in all of its magnificent, filmed glory.
