EXCLUSIVE: Here’s the first trailer for This Is Love, a feature documentary about obscure soul singer Rudy Love featuring interviews with Mick Fleetwood, George Clinton, Marsai Martin and Sinbad.
The film will be released digitally next month via producers Crook & Nanny Productions, beginning with a virtual sneak peek Vimeo On Demand screening on July 4. Rhodes Film & Video and Mick Fleetwood are also collaborating on the release.
Rudy Love may not be a high-profile name, having turned down fame to make music with his family, but his voice has influenced music for decades. The film also looks at the struggles of African American artists against systemic racism and recording industry corruption.
John Alexander directed the movie, which is produced by Robert Love and JC Guest. Also featuring are Bobby Messano, Norman Jay MBE, Gene Keady, Clayton Ivey, James Gadson, Julie Woodson, John McBride and Michael Colyar. Emily Bonavia, Ann Garvey, Susan Houston, and Billboard Award winner Shawn Rhodes executive produce with Mick Fleetwood.
