One of cinema’s most acclaimed music documentaries, Say Amen, Somebody is a funny, uplifting, and deeply emotional celebration of gospel music and African American culture. When originally released, the film received an overwhelming response from critics and audiences around the world. Yet until this gorgeous new restoration (which features a powerful new 5.1 surround sound mix), the movie has been unseen in cinemas for nearly 30 years! With unforgettable performances by the father of gospel, Thomas A. Dorsey, Mother Willie Mae Ford Smith, The Barrett Sisters, and The O’Neal Twins, you’ll see why Roger Ebert ranked it among “the most joyful movies I’ve ever seen!” (100 mins., 4K DCP)
