Rescued from 45 years in legal and technical limbo, this extraordinary music film capturing Aretha Franklin in full flight deserves your respect – and the biggest screen and sound system possible.

In 1972, 29-year-old Aretha Franklin, ‘Queen of Soul’, wishing to return to her gospel roots, chose to record an album live at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Watts, Los Angeles. She was ably accompanied by the top-notch musicians of her regular touring band; the heavenly Southern California Community Choir, conducted by a rocking Alexander Hamilton; mighty Reverend James Cleveland, who taught Franklin piano; and her own father, the great preacher C.L. Franklin. Recorded over two nights, the result was a double album that went on to become the highest-selling live gospel music album of all time.

Tickets are available online through Ticketek, from the front desk at MTG or the box office at the Napier Municipal Theatre. Door sales will also be available at the MTG Century Theatre one hour prior to the screening.

Rating: Exempt.

Presented by: New Zealand International Film Festival.
