Watch The Trailer For Jay Z’s ‘Made In America’ Documentary
The film, ‘Made In America,’ chronicles everything that went into Hov’s first festival, which ran last year from Sept. 1-2. The event featured an extremely diverse lineup including a reunited Run-DMC, Seattle rockers Pearl Jam, R&B songstress Janelle Monae, and EDM leader Skrillex. But as become clear in the trailer, it was more than just a celebration of music; it was about the American dream of turning nothing into something.
That sentiment hits close to home for Jay, which is evident when he jokingly asks if the crew is trying to make him cry as they stand atop a building close to his one-time stash spot in Brooklyn, N.Y. It’s a poignant moment amid clips of the performers speaking on the festival and rocking the stage.
The film will debut on Sept. 7 at the Toronto International Film Festival before airing on Showtime on Oct. 11 at 9 p.m. This year’s Made In America Festival kicks off tomorrow (Aug. 31).
