Amazing Grace

It is a transcendent film. It’s also a surprisingly simple one, perhaps keeping with the unfussy circumstances. ” Vulture

The never-before-seen music documentary capturing Queen of Soul ARETHA FRANKLIN, as she records the most successful gospel album of all time, AMAZING GRACE with James Cleveland and the Southern California Community Choir. Recorded at The New Bethel Baptist Church in Watts, Los Angeles in January 1972. This is one of our absolute top picks from this year’s South by Southwest Festival! We’re so excited to finally getting a chance to share it with you!
