Directed by Oscar® and Emmy® winner Alex Gibney and co-produced by Mick Jagger, Mr. Dynamite: The Rise Of James Brown digs into the career of one of music and culture’s towering figures. On November 6, the Peabody Award-winning documentary film will be released worldwide by UMe on DVD and Blu-ray with exclusive bonus features, including feature-length roundtable commentary, extended interviews with original James Brown Revue members and others, the acclaimed music video for “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World,” and two classic James Brown Soul Train television performances, one of which is an unrehearsed blues romp with Brown’s idols B.B. King and Bobby “Blue” Bland, which has not been seen since its original 1975 airing.
Using fresh interviews with James Brown band members and contemporaries, extraordinary historical interview footage, and rare archival performances of such Brown classics as “Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag,” “I Got You (I Feel Good),” “Out Of Sight,” “Please Please Please,” “Soul Power,” “Sex Machine,” “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World,” “Cold Sweat,” and more, the feature-length documentary was made with the cooperation of the Brown Estate, which opened its archives for the first time.
