Jay Z’s Made In America Festival Documentary Directed By Ron Howard To Debut At Toronto Film Fest

Last year, at Jay Z’s inaugural Made In America festival in Philadelphia, many were treated to the fairly odd site of Jay, Beyoncé—and filmmaker Ron Howard, know for many movies, but most recently for his role as the narrator for television’s Arrested Development. Howard was on hand to direct a documentary based on the festival, which would be co-produced by Hov, Steve Stoute and 8 Mile producer Brian Grazer, and now the doc is set to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in mid-September, according to the BBC (via Pitchfork).

Last year, Jay and Seattle grunge rockers Pearl Jam were the two headliners, with the duo coming together on stage to perform “99 Problems,” a moment which will surely get some air time in the doc. This year’s fest will feature Nine Inch Nails, Black Hippy, 2 Chainz, A$AP Rocky, Miguel and more.

Check a trailer for the fest above.
