The Houston Cinema Arts Society and the Houston Museum of African American Culture will present a drive-through screening of the award-winning documentary at Sundance, Summer of the soul. The film will be preceded by an hour-long chopped and screwed mixtape from DJ Red featuring Stevie Wonder, Sly and the Family Stone, Nina Simone and more.

In his directorial debut, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson presents a powerful and transporting documentary – part a musical film, part a historical record created around an epic event that celebrated Black history, culture and fashion. . For six weeks in the summer of 1969, just 160 kilometers south of Woodstock, the Harlem Cultural Festival was filmed in Mount Morris Park (now Marcus Garvey Park). The images have never been seen and largely forgotten – until now.

Each ticket is per vehicle and not per person. Registration is required and capacity is limited.
