    Based on the Grammy award-winning album of the same name, Amazing Grace is a moving and spine-tingling celebration of the late Aretha Franklin.

    Using never-before-seen raw footage from the 1972 two-day live recording of Franklin’s best-selling gospel album at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles, the film beautifully etches on celluloid the community, spirit and effervescence around Franklin’s music.

    Defying categorisation - part biographical drama, part musical documentary - Amazing Grace paints a sincere portrait of a talented artist at work at the height of her powers.
