Body

Michael Rubenstone, a first-time filmmaker and a Sly and the Family Stone superfan, sets out to find the band’s leader, the reclusive funk legend, Sly Stone. In doing so, he manages to make one of the most comprehensive documentaries on the band to date. Part road movie, part rock doc, the film follows Michael over the course of 12 years as he travels across the country, meets an eclectic cast of characters, unearths the true story of the band, and chronicles how a musical icon fell from grace.
