Directed by George T. Nierenberg | 1982
"The most joyful movie I've seen in a very long time."
—Roger Ebert

This wildly entertaining documentary is an uplifting look at gospel music, bursting with show-stopping songs and an infectious sense of joy. Spotlighting two of the scene’s legends—Thomas A. Dorsey (considered the father of gospel) and Mother Willie Mae Ford Smith—Say Amen, Somebody is a living, breathing record of a major American musical movement. “A masterpiece. This is a great experience” (Roger Ebert).
