Bushel presents its January Community Film Pick: Summer of Soul

DELHI—As part of its Community Film Picks series, Bushel is excited to heat things up with a screening of Summer of Soul (2021), directed by Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson. The film will be shown on Friday, January 20, 7 pm. Doors open at 6:45 pm; screening begins at 7pm, followed by a DJ set 9–10:30 pm with Darwin Marcus Johnson. This program is free to attend. Masks are optional but encouraged; please remain home if you are feeling ill. 

Summer of Soul is the acclaimed filmmaking debut of Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson. This powerful and transporting documentary is 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 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 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. Summer of Soul premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won both the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award.

Bushel thanks Christina Hunt Wood for her film pick! Wood is a visual artist and Bushel collective member. She describes herself as a “local gal and opinionated sugar plum” who loves to hike, bike, and run.

Community Film Picks is a once-a-month film night at Bushel taking place on third Fridays at 7 pm. Bushel invites the community to propose films for future screenings. For information please email: info@bushelcollective.org. Upcoming: Latcho Drom on February 17, 2023, picked by Jonathan Kane.

Excited to see Bushel's pick for January's Community Film Pick: Summer of Soul. As a student always looking for assignment help in UK, it's great to see local communities highlighting important cultural and historical storytelling
