Disney’s Searchlight Pictures has released a new trailer for the upcoming documentary, “Summer of Soul (…or, When the Revolution Could Not be Televised)”.

It will be released theatrically by Searchlight Pictures and will begin streaming on Hulu in the U.S. on July 2nd 2021. The film will also stream internationally through the Star offering on Disney+ on a date to be confirmed.  It has already been confirmed to be coming to Disney+ in Canada on July 2nd.

In his acclaimed debut as a filmmaker, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson presents a powerful and transporting documentary—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 & the Family Stone, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension and more.

Check out the trailer below:


“Summer of Soul (…or, When the Revolution Could Not be Televised),” is the first official project under the recently announced Onyx Collective brand. The winner of both the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at Sundance Film Festival.
