The last time Jay-Z made a documentary out of a concert, it was called Fade To Black, and it was incredible. Last year, Jay curated and headlined the first iteration of his Made In America festival in Philadelphia. Willow director Ron Howard (he’s made a lot of movies, but Willow is obviously the best one) showed up with cameras to document it, and the feature-length result is also called Made In America. The movie looks like a lot of fun for reasons that include the Alice In Chains shirt that DMC wears, the old lady who calls the entire festival annoying, and the DJ lesson that Skrillex appears to give Howard. Check out a trailer below.
Made In America premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival 9/7 and airs on Showtime 10/11. The second Made In America festival happens this weekend, and Diarrhea Planet are playing, so you should go.
