[Los Angeles, CA] – Having swept the international film festival circuit, screening at 40 film festivals worldwide and winning a dozen top prizes, feature soul music documentary THIS IS LOVE with Mick Fleetwood, George Clinton, Marsai Martin and Sinbad now debuts its official trailer.
THIS IS LOVE follows obscure soul singer Rudy Love, a name the public does not know but a voice who has been influencing them for decades. Echoing the rhythms and heart of an unsung music hero, THIS IS LOVE has been lauded as a funky and soulful portrait of a legendary artist who turned down fame to make music with his family. The film encapsulates quintessential struggles of African American artists against systemic racism and record industry corruption of the 20th and 21st centuries.
After winning Raindance’s Spirit Award in London, Best International Documentary in Rome, and a nomination in the Oscar qualifying Krakow Film Festival’s DocFilmMusic Competition, THIS IS LOVE debuts its official trailer in light of current social uprising movements.
