While many are familiar with the chart-topping Earth, Wind & Fire album and song of the same name, not many know that the album was actually a soundtrack for this film (1975), which starred Harvey Keitel. The film, which also prominently features Earth, Wind & Fire, depicts the music business and a record executive who is forced to put “The Group’s” project on the back-burner in favor of a soulless group that represents wholesome family values. Directed by Sig Shore (Superfly).
This screening is part of MUSICALLY SPEAKING, a new series of music-themed movies and documentaries on selected Mondays, curated/hosted by DJ Soul Sister, and co-presented by Press Street, Charitable Film Network, and WWOZ FM.
