Amazing Grace

Director: Sydney Pollack Alan Elliot
Starring: Aretha Franklin, Reverend James Cleveland, The Southern California Community Choir
Duration: 88 min


Witness the queen of soul as you’ve never seen her before. A spine-tingling performance from Aretha Franklin, returning to her gospel roots after many years, is the subject of this powerful new concert film, which captures a two-night recording session in a Los Angeles Baptist church in January 1972. The resulting live album would go on to become the most successful gospel record of all time – ‘Amazing Grace’.

“Franklin singing gospel in a badly lit church with rows of cheap movie theatre seats filled with ecstatic fans is a balm for the spirit, and something that needs to be seen.” - Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian
