Poster for Made in America (2013)

Behind-the-scenes concert documentary, directed by Ron Howard, on superstar rapper and business mogul Jay Z's multi-genre Made in America music festival in Philadelphia. Features performances by Pearl Jam, Jill Scott, Kanye West, Passion Pit, Rita Ora, and Run-DMC. More

"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. Interludes include one-on-ones with audience members about what the show means to the Philly community - the responses are both positive and negative. Howard explores the birthplace of American Independence and how it relates to this unprecedented event. He even takes some time to follow a local hip-hop group through its attempt to get added to the prestigious bill." (Toronto Film Festival)

Made in America (2013) | Reviews



An ambitiously multifaceted documentary... less than fully satisfying as a conventional performance cavalcade, but sustains considerable interest as a behind-the-scenes overview of a musically and culturally diverse event.
