USA | 2018 | dir. Allan Elliott and Sydney Pollack, with Aretha Franklin, Reverend James Cleveland

In 1971, Aretha Franklin, the undisputed Queen of Soul, brought producer Jerry Wexler, her backup singers, and the legendary Atlantic Records rhythm section to The New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles to record an album of gospel music before an enthusiastic live audience. The result, Amazing Grace, went on to become one of the biggest albums of Aretha Franklin’s career and the best-selling Gospel record of all times. An extraordinary look at a key moment in American musical and social history, and an invaluable record of one of America’s greatest artists led by Oscar-winning filmmaker Sydney Pollack.
