Outdoor Movie at Belle Isle Park: ‘Soul Power’

In partnership with the DIA, Belle Isle will screen the 2008 documentary Soul Power as part of their outdoor movie night series. Soul Power takes us behind the scenes of the 1974 Zaire music festival in Kinshasa, which was intended to complement the Rumble in the Jungle heavyweight boxing championship between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman. Inspired by the enthusiasm of the Zairan audience and the return to their African roots, the archival footage shows prolific musicians such as James Brown, the Spinners, Celia Cruz, Bill Withers, Miriam Makeba, B.B. King, and many more giving the performances of their lives.
