“One of the great music films...as glorious in communal feeling and South Los Angeles zeal as “Wattstax”
—Wesley Morris, The New York Times

The legendary, long-unseen concert film companion to Aretha Franklin’s iconic gospel album at last emerges. Shot over two days in 1972 Los Angeles at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Watts, but never before released, Amazing Grace captures the Queen of Soul at the height of her powers as she brings down the house with rousing renditions of “How I Got Over,” “Never Grow Old,” Marvin Gaye’s “Wholy Holy,” the miraculous title song, and more. A rapturous, awe-inspiring experience, this lost masterpiece offers “the most lovely gaze a professional camera’s ever laid upon Aretha Franklin and some of the mightiest singing she’s ever laid on you” (Wesley Morris, The New York Times).
