I'm an actor just trying to do what I love
Found footage docs can be really hard to make coherent and flow smoothly. Questlove makes it look like a piece of cake. Mahalia Jackson’s performance gave me shivers and goosebumps and all the tears.
It’s insane this was filmed in ‘69 and the shits are that dynamic and capture how electric it was. And even more insane that this incredible footage was just locked away because distributors didn’t want the “Black Woodstock.” Fucking wild.
I would love to see some kind of extended collection of this with the whole sets of the performances.
