NewFest Presents: LITTLE RICHARD: I AM EVERYTHING
This joyous documentary tells the story of the Black queer origins of rock n’ roll and celebrates the innovator – the originator – Little Richard.
Fresh off its premiere at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, Lisa Cortés’ joyous documentary tells the story of the Black queer origins of rock n’ roll, exploding the whitewashed canon of American pop music to reveal the innovator – the originator – Richard Penniman. Through a wealth of archive and performance that brings us into Richard’s complicated inner world, the film unspools the icon’s life story with all its switchbacks and contradictions.
