Michael Jackson’s Journey From Motown To Off The Wall Trailer. Spike Lee‘s Michael Jackson’s Journey From Motown To Off The Wall (2016) movie trailer stars Michael JacksonQuestlove and John LegendMichael Jackson’s Journey From Motown To Off The Wall‘s plot synopsis: “A look at the life of the late pop star Michael Jackson from his early days at Motown Records to the release of his hit 1979 album, Off the Wall.”

According to Slashfilm, “Featuring archival footage from concerts, TV appearances and more mixed with talking heads from musicians such as Questlove, The Weeknd, David Byrne, John Legend, Pharrell Williams and more, the film dives into a part of Jackson’s life that hasn’t been highlighted in-depth very extensively. Spike Lee seems like the perfect director to dive into Jackson’s legacy, and he even has parents Katherine and Joe Jackson, and his brothers Jackie and Marlon Jackson appearing as well.

One morning, a television set broke down in a living room in Gary, Indiana, leaving a large family of children with nothing to do — so they started singing. Soon the family was singing at talent shows and winning trophies. Their first four recorded songs would top the charts, and launch the career of one of the greatest entertainers the world has ever known.

Director Spike Lee assembles a wealth of archival footage, interviews with contemporary talents and family members, and Michael’s own words and image to create this insightful chronicle of the star’s early rise to fame. An in-depth look at a chapter of his career that is rarely examined, Michael Jackson’s Journey from Motown to Off the Wall allows audiences to travel with Michael as he gets his start at Motown, strikes a new path with CBS records, and forges a relationship with legendary producer Quincy Jones. An illuminated portrait emerges of how an earnest, passionate, hard-working boy would become the ‘King of Pop.'”

Marco Margaritoff

I grew up in Hamburg to a German father and Ecuadorian mother. Obsessive student of film, Hip-Hop, and stand-up comedy. I love the dark dreambox that is the cinema auditorium. I love mountains and the ocean, but am equally exhilarated by the jungle of the city. I hope to one day create something that hits someone in the brain with thunderous effect.

    Love the Bad documentary and this looks like a winner also. Never saw much footage of concerts during this era.
