Jay Z takes music lovers behind-the-scenes during one of the year’s biggest concerts, the “Made In America” festival in Philadelphia. Captured by acclaimed director Ron Howard, the rapper-mogul and curator of the two-day event brings us closer to the action in a 90-minute documentary which debuted on Showtime.

The Brooklyn MC and Howard give viewers their thoughts leading up to the inaugural show in 2012, along with perspectives from festival security guards, crew members, promoters, food vendors, and the mayor of Philadelphia Michael Nutter. It captures Jay Z as he prepares for his headling set, along with artists such as Jill Scott, Odd Future, Rita Ora, Pearl Jam, Skrillex, Run DMC, Janelle Monáe, and more sharing their stories before hitting the stage at Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

The film also captures Jay Z heading to his old apartment, the now famous 560 State Street in Brooklyn, where he observes the new Barclays Center with a beautiful view.
