THE DOCUMENTARY ABOUT ARETHA FRANKLIN WHICH WILL BE RELEASED 46 YEARS AFTER

New York / The documentary Amazing Grace, recorded during a gospel concert of the legendary American singer Aretha Franklin, will be released next week in New York, 46 years after its shoot, US media reported.

The premiere put an end to a long legal dispute and numerous technical problems, this will take place next Monday at DOC NYC festival.

Then it will start its career to be eligible for the Oscars.

The film was filmed mostly by the filmmaker Sydeny Pollack for two days at New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles, where Franklin recorded in January 1972 an album with the same name.

“The fans of Aretha will be captivated by every moment of the film while her genius, her devotion to God and her spirit are present in each sequence,” producer Alan Elliot said in a statement released by local media.

Pollack made the mistake of not synchronizing the sound during the recording of the film, which generated serious technical problems that were not solved until 2011 and they were added after those generated between the singer and the producers for the rights of the film.

After reaching an agreement for distribution with Arteha’s relatives, the film will come to light only a few months after the death of Franklin, who died last August of cancer at age 76.

“Amazing Grace is the heart and soul of Aretha Franklin,” the niece of the singer, Sabrina Owens, told reporters on Monday before adding, “Your fans need to see this film so pure and cheerful.”

Born in 1942 in Memphis (Tennessee), the artist achieved the title of “Queen of Soul” after Respect appearance in 1967, which became an anthem of the struggle for equality of the black population and, in particular the women. (November 6, 2018, EFE/Practica Español)
