One of the unsung heroes of blues and rock&roll, Lee Fields’ career has touched groups like Kool & the Gang and Sharon Jones, to rappers Travis Scott and A$ap Rocky. Often compared to James Brown, this documentary shows that soul veteran Lee Fields’ life and goals were unique and rich. (dir. Jessamyn Ansary, Joyce Mishaan, U.S,  2022, 76 m)
