The film was made in 1972 but is only getting released now

Back in 1972, Sydney Pollack made a film about the recording of Aretha Franklin’s 1972 live gospel album, Amazing Grace.

Due to technical and legal issues the film was never released at the time, but it’s finally getting its world premiere at the DOC NYC film festival next week.

Watch the trailer below:
