Foxlowe Films Presents:
As part of Leek’s Blues and Americana festival featuring over 50 acts over 5 nights, we are delighted to screen Amazing Grace. Almost 50 years after technical issues scuppered its original release, Sydney Pollack’s concert film of Aretha Franklin’s legendary gospel album, Amazing Grace is finally on the big screen. Shot over two nights in January 1972, the film shows Franklin return to her gospel roots at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles before an ecstatic live audience. Amazing Grace went on to become one of the biggest and most beloved albums of Aretha’s career. “Amazing Grace is, without a doubt one of the finest music documentaries ever. For close to 90 minutes I sat with chills up and down my spine in a near-constant roll” The Guardian.
