In 1972, director Sydney Pollack filmed Aretha Franklin at the height of her powers, performing live at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Watts, Los Angeles. The audio recording yielded what would become the highest-selling LP of her career and the most popular gospel album of all time. Sound-synching issues and, later, legal hangups with Franklin, kept the film languishing in the vaults for over 45 years — until the singer’s family green-lit its release after she passed away in 2018, 10 years after Pollack’s death.
