Little Richard: I Am Everything
July 15 5:20 pm - 7:30 pm
Feature Documentary/2023/USA/101min/Directed by Lisa Cortes
That both Mick Jagger and John Waters appear, alongside some killer archive footage, in Little Richard: I Am Everything says something about the musician’s standing and influence.
A unique rock and roll icon – let’s be honest no-one else really came close to Little Richard – the queer, African American musician and visionary was a true original and innovator, Cortes documentary tells Little Richard’s story and celebrates the rock and roller’s central role in creating music with true attitude.
Winner of Nesnadny + Schwartz Portrait Documentary Competition at Cleveland International Film Festival, and nominated for awards at both Sundance Film Festival and SXSW, Little Richard: I Am Everything is a perfect music documentary, a reminder of the central role of African American and queer people in creating popular music at its inception and a celebration of rock and roll.
“Even if you’re not a fan of Little Richard going into this film, chances are you will be by the time it’s over.” – David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
