Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is based on the play of the same name by August Wilson. It focuses on a fateful recording session of “Mother of the Blues” Ma Rainey in Chicago 1927. The story deals with issues of music, race, relationships and the exploitation of black recording artists.

Tony Award-winner George C. Wolfe has directed the movie. The screenplay is by Ruben Santiago-Hudson. It is produced by Todd Black’s Escape Artists, Denzel Washington and Dany Wolf. Tobias A. Schliessler serves as the cinematography, and the music is by Branford Marsalis.

Brief Synopsis of Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom 

Tensions and temperatures rise over the course of an afternoon recording session in 1920s Chicago as a band of musicians await trailblazing performer, the legendary “Mother of the Blues,” Ma Rainey (Academy Award winner Viola Davis). Late to the session, the fearless, fiery Ma engages in a battle of wills with her white manager and producer over control of her music. As the band waits in the studio’s claustrophobic rehearsal room, ambitious trumpeter Levee (Chadwick Boseman) — who has an eye for Ma’s girlfriend and is determined to stake his own claim on the music industry — spurs his fellow musicians into an eruption of stories revealing truths that will forever change the course of their lives. Adapted from two-time Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson’s play, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom celebrates the transformative power of the blues and the artists who refuse to let society’s prejudices dictate their worth.
