Jeffrey Levy-Hinte's "Soul Power"

Jeffrey Levy-Hinte was the editor for the 1996 Academy Award-winning documentary When We Were Kings, which told the story of “The Rumble in the Jungle” - the 1974 heavyweight title fight between the champion George Foreman and the challenger Muhammad Ali in Kinshasa, Zaire. What that film only touched upon, Levy-Hinte was able to put at center stage in his directorial debut. Soul Power goes behind the scenes of the three-day musical festival scheduled to coincide with the bout, but when an injury to Foreman postponed the fight, the concert had to go on as planned. The film highlights amazing live performances by the best African and African-American performers of the day, including James Brown, B.B. King, Bill Withers and Celia Cruz.
