The 2021 documentary Mr. SOUL! captures the vibrancy and importance of the variety show, which for five years highlighted the Black Arts Movement when other media focused instead on inner-city poverty and violence.
The free virtual screening comes the week before the documentary’s official broadcast premiere and is a part of the Indie Lens Pop-Up series, presented by KLRN and Presa House Gallery.
Mr. SOUL! will be preceded by a screening of the short film “Birth of Afrobeat,” and followed by a performance of San Antonio neo-soul band The Foreign Arm.
Free, 6 p.m. Sunday, February 14, ovee.itvs.org/screenings/qfoth.
