A documentary written and directed by France Swimberge
The undisputed queen of soul, Aretha Franklin occupies a unique place in the history of music. An extraordinary diva who never left her hometown of Detroit, she sang the soundtrack of the revolutions of the 1960s, including the fights for women’s rights and civil rights. This film presents a vibrant portrait of the celebrated voice of the American Dream and the artist who gave an anthem to everyone who demanded “R-E-S-P-E-C-T.”
