Directed by Mel Stuart | 1973
"A mere concert flick it's not. Wattstax not only documents the soul-titan concert held at L.A. Coliseum... but illuminates the rue and kinesis of a city in full Black Power flower."
—The Village Voice

Stax brought out the stars for this massive day-long concert held after the 1972 Watts riots, including Isaac Hayes, the Staple Singers, and Rufus Thomas. Along with an awe-inspiring round of “I Am Somebody,” the live wire that is Richard Pryor elevates the film to greatness.
