Brilliantly capturing a remarkable performer near the peak of her prodigious power, this is a thrilling must-watch documentary for Aretha Franklin fans.

In January 1972, Aretha Franklin gave two days of gospel performances at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Watts, Los Angeles, recording what would become her best selling album, Amazing Grace. The sessions were captured by a film crew led by Sydney Pollack, but the footage wound up in a vault and became one of the lost cinematic treasures of twentieth-century music... until now.

Running time: 1h48, including ads and trailers.
