Soul Power

2009 | 93 min. minutes | Rated PG-13

Director Jeffrey Levy-Hinte's documentary perhaps works best as a companion piece to Leon Gast's When We Were Kings. That 1996 documentary depicted the famed "Rumble in the Jungle"--the 1974 Heavyweight Championship bout between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman that took place in Kinshasa, the capital city of Zaire. Promoter Don King didn't just put on a fight, though--he also simultaneously staged a musical festival that showcased both African and African American musicians, and Soul Power is the long-forgotten footage of that festival.
