On The Sly: In Search Of The Family Stone
Michael Rubenstone, a first-time filmmaker, and Sly and the Family Stone super fan, sets out to find the band’s leader, the reclusive funk legend – Sly Stone. In doing so, he manages to make the most comprehensive documentary on the band to date, while also bringing Sly out of hiding for the first time since his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction in 1993. Part road movie, part rock doc, On the Sly follows Michael over the course of ten years, across the United States, as he unearths the true story of the band and chronicles how a musical icon fell from grace. Along the way he meets members of the original Family Stone, some eclectic characters who soothe his soul, and some who make him question his search entirely. Through detailed interviews we learn about the complexity of Sly Stone, all while grappling with the question, “Why do we search for our heroes?” Is it to find answers from them, or ultimately to find answers within ourselves? Hit the road and join.
