In the early 1970s, fresh from a succession of hit songs, Aretha Franklin recorded for two nights at a Baptist church in Los Angeles - a legendary session that would become her biggest selling album, Amazing Grace. Remarkably, director Sydney Pollack (Tootsie, Out of Africa) was there to shoot it, but a series of complications led to the footage being left on the shelf - until now. With the help of modern editing techniques employed by Alan Elliott, this extraordinary performance comes to the big screen for the first time, over 40 years on.
"Amazing Grace restores a missing piece of cinema history. With the gestures it reveals, and the spirituality it captures, it gives us something else - an act of worship, reborn" - Little White Lies
