Directed by Reginald Hudlin Produced by Nicole Avant, Nelson George, Byron Phillips, Caitrin Rogers WINNER | BEST DOCUMENTARY African American Film Critics’ Association TOP 5 DOCUMENTARIES OF THE YEAR National Board of Review WINNER | HOLLYWOOD SONG AWARD “LETTER TO MY GODFATHER” Hollywood Film Awards Featuring the Award-Winning Original Song “LETTER TO MY GODFATHER” Performed by Pharrell Williams Written by Pharrell Williams & Chad Hugo “It spins its own joyful melody. An indelible portrait of cagey black entrepreneurship and honest mentoring. Rollicking, heartfelt testimonials from the likes of Quincy Jones, Hank Aaron, Berry Gordy and Barack Obama amongst dozens of others.” LOS ANGELES TIMES “The anecdotes are gold.” THE NEW YORK TIMES “Insightful. Clarence Avant’s impact on half a century of black music – and black enterprise in general – needs no introduction in the power corridors of the entertainment industry.” VARIETY “A new original song that honors Clarence Avant and the music industry greats he was responsible for ushering in.” THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER For decades, the world’s most high profile entertainers, athletes and politicians have turned to a single man for advice during the most pivotal moments in their lives and careers, including Grammy Award® winners, Hall of Famers, a Heavyweight Champion of the World and two U.S. Presidents. That man is Clarence Avant. The Black Godfather charts the exceptional and unlikely rise of Avant, a music executive whose trailblazing behind-the-scenes accomplishments impacted the legacies of icons such as Bill Withers, Quincy Jones, Muhammad Ali, Hank Aaron, and Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Driven by a sense of equality, loyalty, and justice, Avant left the Jim Crow south behind to emerge as a powerhouse negotiator at a time when deep-seated racism penetrated every corner of America. Avant defied notions of what a black executive could do, redefining the industry for entertainers and executives of color, and leaving a legacy of altruism for others to emulate. Directed by Academy Award® nominee Reginald Hudlin and featuring interviews with Snoop Dogg, P. Diddy, Lionel Richie, Suzanne de Passe, David Geffen, Jerry Moss, Cicely Tyson, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and Jamie Foxx, among others, The Black Godfather pulls the curtain back on the maestro himself, projecting a spotlight on the man who’s spent his entire career ensuring that it shined on others.
