 Say Amen, Somebody,  a treasured gospel documentary has been restored and is on a limited run in theaters. And believe me, it is a must see. The 1982 release was directed by George T. Nierenberg (GTN Productions) and redone in 4k restored to visual glory by Milestone Films for our joy to experience in 2019. The one-hour plus documentary is a love letter to gospel music with all of its ups, downs, shameful sexism and soul saving properties. But all in all, it is heavenly to watch.

Filmed partly in St. Louis, Say Amen, Somebody recently played at the Film Lincoln Center. It’s run in St. Louis ends Thursday, September 19 at the Galleria 6 Cinemas. Check the theater for show times. There will be a red carpet screening of Say Amen, Somebody on the final day in St. Louis, this Thursday, at 6p.m. CT, presented by the Inspired Lives foundation, The Butler Group and C-Note Entertainment. Tickets for this are just $7.


Congratulations Mr. Dello Thedford
