More about the movie:

ON THE SLY: IN SEARCH OF THE FAMILY STONE

An obsessive fan’s quest to locate the whereabouts of 1970s musical icon Sly Stone forms the basis of this 2017 Slamdance documentary selection. Director/Subject Michael Rubenstone and Executive Producer Todd Shotz, both Philly-born and raised, in attendance!

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. But will he ever get the chance to meet his hero? Hit the road and join the search!

Featuring dozens of interviews with the likes of Dick Cavett, Cornel West, Paul Shaffer, and friends and family of the band, ON THE SLY is a riveting portrait of a mysterious musical icon and his most devoted fan.
