Amazing Grace

  • Harris Academy South Norwood 2 Cumberlow Avenue London SE25 6AE (map)

Dir. Sydney Pollack, Alan Elliott • 2019 • UK/US • Documentary • 86 mins • Cert U

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.
