Director: Mark Landsman
So for those of you out there who don’t know Thunder Soul is a documentary about how in the 1970’s Cashmere High School band director Conrad Johnson turned his band into an international funk sensation and 30 years later the students returned and they pay a tribute to him, and they talk about how he changed their lives forever and how the neighborhood that housed their school for a time was made whole.
Really awesome story and documentary. It’s a tear jerker from beginning to end. Actor Jamie Fox has signed on as a producer. The pacing was excellent not a dull moment in the entire piece. The the talking head part was engaging and entertaining to say the least. The former students of Conrad Johnson and he himself are completely, totally loving and honest. The cut of the film definitely has a great deal to do with its popularity. Excellent pacing and some damn good funk.
