Ron Howard’s Jay-Z Documentary Screening at Toronto International Film Festival

Director Ron Howard is set to debut his new documentary, Made In America, at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival next month. The film, shot during last year’s Made In America music festival in Philadelphia, will document Jay’s rise to stardom and his preparations for the festival which he helped put together with Budweiser.

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. Fascinating 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.

The screening is scheduled for Saturday, September 7th, one week after this year’s Made In America show. Ticket information is available here.
