Hosted by band members of Gem City and directed by cultural critic Nelson George, this VH1 Rock Doc chronicles one of pop music’s most beloved genres, exploring both the components and the innovative artists behind funk's rise throughout the 1970s. The film gets a helping hand from The Roots drummer Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, who provides narration, as well as memories and insights from legends like Bootsy Collins, Sly Stone, D'Angelo, Shelia E and many more. Presented in conjunction with VOICES: America's Music, in partnership with Street Sounds and Only WonderUS.
