Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson tore the roof off this year’s virtual Sundance Film Festival with Summer of Soul, his rollicking documentary about the incredible music on display during the nearly-forgotten Harlem Cultural Festival of 1969. That film won the Audience Award and the U.S. Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at the festival earlier this month, and now Thompson has announced he’s returning behind the camera to make a feature documentary about Sly Stone, founding member of the influential band Sly and the Family Stone and one of the musicians who appeared on stage in the archival footage in Summer of Soul.
