Directed by George T. Nierenberg (USA, 1983, 100 min.). Digital.

Gospel music is the subject of this lively film, which explores the history of the faith-rooted musical style. While the documentary highlights a number of gospel musicians, it looks closely at the considerable contributions of Thomas A. Dorsey, a pioneering songwriter and pianist, and his popular associate, singer "Mother" Willie Mae Ford Smith. Also featured are several concert performances by the Barrett Sisters, Sallie Martin and other gospel luminaries. Co-presented with Roxbury International Film Festival on December 11th.
