Spike Lee has been more active as of late than in recent years. He lent his name to video game NBA 2K16, dubbing it a Spike Lee Joint, and released the polarizing film CHI-RAQ. Lee is now set to unveil his documentary Michael Jackson’s Journey From Motown To Off The Wall which will make its way to the Sundance Film Festival later this month before airing on Showtime. The Brooklyn director tapped Questlove, David Byrne, the Weeknd, Pharrell, Kobe Bryant, Lee Daniels, Misty Copeland, Mark Ronson, John Legend, and L.A. Reid to reflect on how MJ’s monumental classic Off The Wall shaped their musical tastes and sensibilities. Jackson’s parents, Katherine and Joe, sit down for interviews as well. The film also features rare, remastered concert footage from MJ’s Off The Wall Tour. This will pretty much be a must-see for even the slightest music fan. Watch the first preview below.
Michael Jackson’s Journey From Motown To Off The Wall will debut at Sundance on 1/24 and air on Showtime on 2/5.
