In 1972, Sydney Pollack was hired to film the making of Aretha Franklin’s live album Amazing Grace, as she performed with a full gospel choir over two consecutive nights at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles. Unavailable for 50 years due to contract issues, Alan Elliot has now put all that electrifying footage together in this essential document that showcases the legend at her absolute peak.

Legendary blues musician Paul Butterfield has been called the greatest blues harmonica player of all time. He snatched guitar legend Mike Bloomfield from Bob Dylan’s group and put together a crackerjack blues band. The only artist to perform at The Newport Folk Festival in 1965, The Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 and Woodstock in 1969, Paul broke new ground in the blues while standing up for racial equality wherever he played.

In the summer of 1973, a young international crew of six women and five men embarked together on a most unusual sea voyage—a trip across the Atlantic from Spain to Mexico on a free-floating raft. Now, more than forty years later, the surviving crew members reunite to reenact and recollect their experience. What results is a document of the thin line between science and cultism in the early ‘70s, a touching story of female camaraderie and, in the character of Mexican anthropologist Santiago Genové an unforgettable portrait of oblivious, toxic masculinity.
