Say Amen, Somebody
A documentary about the men and women who pioneered African American gospel music, this film was widely praised upon its release in 1982; the late Roger Ebert called it “One of the most joyful movies I’ve ever seen.” But it hasn’t been seen in theaters in nearly 30 years. Now George T. Nierenberg’s film has been restored and re-released.
