Directed by Jason Orr | 2012

Atlanta’s underground music scene comes alive in this vibrant documentary narrated by the innovators of an important—and in some cases overlooked—era in black culture. Spanning the late 1980s to the early 2000s, the film chronicles the evolution of the FunkJazz Kafé Arts & Music Festival, in the process examining the roots of soul music and the challenges it faces in the mainstream music industry. The film includes special appearances by Erykah Badu, Cee Lo Green, Chuck D, Cornel West, Kevin Powell, Roy Ayers, Doug E. Fresh and more.
