New Perspectives Film Series: Thunder Soul
Rescheduled for Saturday, Jan. 19, 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.
The New Perspectives Film Series kicks off the new year with Thunder Soul, an exuberant documentary that was the audience winner at SXSW in Austin, HotDocs in Toronto, the Los Angeles Film festival, and the Dallas International Film festival. Presented by Jamie Foxx, Thunder Soul follows the extraordinary alumni from Houston’s storied Kashmere High School Stage Band, who return home after 35 years to play a tribute concert for the 92-year-old “Prof,” their beloved band leader who broke the color barrier and transformed the school’s struggling jazz band into a world-class funk powerhouse in the early 1970s. Suggested donation of $5. Refreshments served. The New Perspectives Documentary series is programmed and moderated by filmmaker, Megan Smith-Harris. A Q&A will follow the film. Registration highly recommended.
