Please join Amoeba for screenings of Twenty Feet from Stardom (USA 2012, 90 min), directed by Morgan Neville. Focusing largely on African American women whose passionate singing and gospel-inspired sound influenced both popular culture and enhanced British and American rock music from the 1950s to the present day, this film highlights the lives, aspirations, and challenges of some of history’s most talented and gifted background artists.
Playing the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas on April 26th and 28th. Get your tickets and read more about the film HERE!
