Made In America
Drawn from an enormous trove of performance footage and backstage interviews, Made in America captures the inaugural edition of an exciting festival created by rapper and impresario Jay Z, which rocked Philadelphia over Labour Day weekend last year. In keeping with his excellent and eclectic taste, Jay Z’s extraordinary hand-picked line-up speaks to his broad and inclusive view of American culture. As seen through Howard’s affectionate gaze, Made in America is a love letter not only to Jay Z and his unique project, but also to the city of Philadelphia. Howard explores the birthplace of American Independence and how it relates to this unprecedented event.
