Magnolia Pictures has released the official trailer for the forthcoming documentary, Little Richard: I Am Everything, directed by Lisa Cortés.
About The Film:
The 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.
In interviews with family, musicians, and cutting-edge Black and queer scholars, the film reveals how Richard created an art form for ultimate self-expression, yet what he gave to the world he was never able to give to himself.
Throughout his life, Richard careened like a shiny cracked pinball between God, sex and rock n’ roll.
The world tried to put him in a box, but Richard was an omni being who contained multitudes – he was unabashedly everything.
April 21, 2023, in theaters and digital release
