Roger Ross Williams, USA 2019, 102 min

As a showcase for black music and culture in America, Harlem’s Apollo Theater is unparalleled. Director Roger Ross Williams traces its history with bountiful archival footage from the venue, using pivotal moments in black civic history for context, and preparations for a star-studded presentation of Ta-Nehisi Coates’s Between the World and Me to show its continued relevance. Filled with a riveting parade of performances and interviews, including Patti LaBelle, Smokey Robinson, Eartha Kitt, Aretha Franklin, Savion Glover, and Redd Foxx, The Apollo pays tribute to a venerable and indispensable American institution.

(with special musical introduction by Fantastic Negrito)
