LIVING ON SOUL is a hybrid docu-concert film featuring the late Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley and the rest of the Grammy-nominated Daptone Records family. Filmed largely during Daptone’s December 2014 three-night, sold-out residency at the historic Apollo Theater in Harlem, the documentary features a mixture of live performances and verité scenes that paint a robust picture of the Daptone family and culture.
The performances and stories bring to mind a bygone era of films, entertainment and craftsmanship. The documentary molds itself after THE LAST WALTZ, MONTEREY POP and SOUL POWER; and not since James Brown’s legendary residencies in the 70s has Harlem’s Apollo Theater played host to such an event.
“It’s going to be very hard for you stay in your seat for this one.” (The Playlist)
