Northern Soul films

I know of two films based around the Northern Soul movement of northern England from the early 70s (which continues today).

“Soulboy” (2010) is an independent, feature-length drama film based around the culture and history of Northern Soul, featuring a fair amount of dancing. Here’s the trailer:

“Young Souls” is a short film that’s been making its rounds on the festival circuit. I first saw it at SIFF‘s dance film program in 2012.

Unfortunately, neither is widely available. “Young Souls” is only available in a difficult-to-watch 360p format, and “Soulboy” has very limited distribution. I had to order a Blu-ray from Germany, since it doesn’t seem to have had a Blu-ray release even in England, where it was made.

If anyone else has any links to well-produced Northern Soul films, we’d love to hear about it!
