Watch: Ron Howard's Jay-Z Concert Doc 'Made in America' First Trailer
Exactly one year ago today, we got news that Jay-Z was hosting a special music festival in Philadelphia with the likes of Drake, Pearl Jam, Run-DMC, Skrillex, Rick Ross, Miike Snow, Odd Future and Janelle Monáe taking the stage with Hova himself. Normally, we would just think that's cool and not write about it, but in this case, director Ron Howard was shooting a documentary about Jay-Z called Made in America, that would follow that musician as he put the event together and prepared to perform. Now the first trailer for the documentary which will premiere on Showtime after debuting at TIFF 2013. Watch now!
Here's the first trailer for Ron Howard's Made in America from Showtime:
Made in America is directed by Ron Howard and captures the inaugural edition of an exciting new festival created by rapper and impresario Jay Z, which rocked Philadelphia over Labor Day weekend last year. In keeping with his excellent and eclectic taste, Jay Z’s extraordinary hand-picked lineup speaks to his broad and inclusive view of American culture. Fascinating interludes include one-on-ones with audience members about what the show means to the Philly community, an exploration of the birthplace of American Independence and even the chronicle of a local hip-hop group as they attempt to get added to the prestigious bill. The documentary premieres at TIFF 2013 and will premiere on Showtime on October 11th.
