the film document Summer of the soul, directed by questlove, was screened at Guild Hall by the Hamptons Film Fest.
At the exclusive pre-show party, Anne Chaisson, executive director of HIFF, Cristina Cuomo, and Alec and Hilaria Baldwin (with their charming and precocious daughter) carmen) sipped and enjoyed appetizers at The Baker House 1650.
The film? Astonishing.
Images of the “Black Woodstock” – a summer music festival in 1969 in Harlem metlem Gladys Knight, David Ruffin, Stevie Wonder, Mavis Maples and many other artists – was neglected and forgotten until recently.
The screening was followed by a Zoom interview between Baldwin, Questlove and the Artistic Director of HIFF David Nugent.
Now streaming on Hulu, Summer of the soul is a summer must-see!
