46 years ago Sydney Pollack filmed Aretha Franklin’s most remarkable and intense performance, a two day recording of her most successful album at the New Temple Baptist Mission church in Los Angeles.
After a painstaking process of syncing the audio to the footage, Alan Elliot completed Pollack’s work and produced one of the most important visuals of musical history to date.
A truly soul-shaking, electrifying and transcendental experience, Amazing Grace is one of the most anticipated concert films you’ll ever see.
