Oscar-winning director Sydney Pollack shows Aretha Franklin's 1972 recording of her live double album at a L.A. Baptist Church. This carnival of music lasted two nights, but technical problems – such as sound and image synchronisation – meant the recording was archived until recently. The movie allows us to go back in time and watch Aretha – at the height of her glory – return to the music that heralded her brilliant talent and see the making of Amazing Grace – the best-selling gospel record of all time. This is one of the most emotionally-powerful musical documentaries ever made. A must-see 88-minute ride for all music fans. IMDb trailer
