Capturing a Legend: Aretha Franklin – Amazing Grace
Originally recorded by Sydney Pollack over two days at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Watts, LA, in 1972, and then brought to life decades later by producer Alan Elliot, Amazing Grace is a raw and unfettered documentary of the live recording of the incomparable gospel music album. Join us for a screening of the film that captures the majestic Franklin at the height of her artistry, and which Rolling Stone describes as “…the closest thing to witnessing a miracle,” followed by a panel discussion. Presented in partnership with Eisner/Lauder New Views Documentary Series.
