ABOUT THE FILM

” …This MUST be seen. awesome!!!!! share this.”

Questlove of the Roots, Rolling Stone Magazine

JACKSON 5 IN AFRICA

Narrated by renowned actor Robert Hooks and filmed in Senegal, this never-before-seen film documents the Jackson 5 as they embarked on a their 1974 African tour.

The film opens with the Jackson being greeted by a group of dancers and drummers at the airport. There is a wonderful section with Michael Jackson and the family at an African market and classic live footage of the group performing “Hum Along and Dance” (rare songs not-recorded) and 10-year-old Randy (who at the time just joined the group) is interviewed briefly and plays a drum solo at the concert. There’s lots more in the film, including some great shots of both Northern and Southern Senegalese weaving techniques, an excellent description of mask-making and a great shot of teary-eyed Joe Jackson receiving the Medal of the Lion, the highest Senegalese honor.

The film is 50 minutes long and ends abruptly because it was never finished.

Event Name

How did ImageNation get such a rare film? JACKSON 5 IN AFRICA was made be a group of African investors who ran out of money trying to finish the film. In 1982, the owner of this film — an international businessman (who wants to remain anonymous) — bartered with one of the original producers, acquiring a 16mm print of this rare film, in exchange for a 4ct rough diamond. Years later, he reached out to ImageNation to help him find a collector/buyer for the never-before-screened rare film. When Michael Jackson passed on Thursday, we requested permission to do a public screening of the film to celebrate to life of Michael Jackson. The owner agreed, and asked ImageNation to vet offers for this rare film. Collectors/buyers that are interested in the film should send an email to gregory@imagenation.us
