Trivia & Production Notes
- Made In America tells the story of rapper turned mogul JAY Z's journey to planning a genre-defying festival intended to uplift the American people in the depths of an economic recession. Held in Philadelphia, the birthplace of American Independence, JAY Z's eclectic taste brought together culture and music, featuring performers from all genres of music, including electronic, pop, hip hop, rock and folk. Howard's raw concert footage gives life to epic cross-genre performances, including Run DMC's first live performance since the death of DJ Jam Master Jay in 2002, accompanied by Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder.
- "This is not a concert film but rather a reflection of the fabric of what it means to be Made in America – what the festival represents, why JAY is doing it, and how he relates to each artist," said Ron Howard. "Made In America is intended to showcase JAY Z's struggle for success and illustrate how he has become a voice and an icon for a generation of driven and creative youth."
