Kosmorama, in collaboration with the Church City Mission (Kirkens Bymisjon), has the pleasure of inviting the inhabitants of Trondheim to a free screening of the outstanding concert film Amazing Grace (2018) in the Church of Our Lady (Vår Frue kirke).
In this critically acclaimed concert film, we experience Aretha Franklin’s deeply personal and transcendent musical power performance in New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles. Amazing Grace has received brilliant reviews and is described as one of the greatest concert films of all time. Sydney Pollack’s planned 1972 documentary took almost 50 years to release, and it’s definitely worth the wait.
The screening will start with an introduction by Sigmund Vegge, museum educator at Rockheim. He’ll talk about the importance of Franklin’s music in general and the recording of these two concerts, especially, which remains the best-selling gospel record of all time.
