Little Richard: I Am Everything


Wednesday, April 12

Lisa Cortes (a director of the fantastic ALL IN, about Stacy Abrams, and producer of PRECIOUS and THE APOLLO) tells the story of an essential musician who—due in part to being Black and queer, and in part from his transgressive nature and troubled personal life—has yet to receive his due as a founding father of rock ’n’ roll. The documentary includes rarely seen archive footage, interviews with those he influenced and, of course, some of the most impactful sounds of the last century. (U.S., 2023, 98m)

“Enthralling … directed with supreme love and insight.” –Variety
