Al Green was a soul singer with a million-dollar career when he awoke one day in a hotel room praising God. Full of this new spirit, he became a gospel singer and a Pentecostal preacher. Award-winning filmmaker Robert Mugge (New Orleans Music in Exile, Sonny Rollins: Saxophone Colossus) examines Green’s life and music in intimate interviews, passionate performances ("Let’s Stay Together," "Free at Last," "Amazing Grace"), and a sermon both spoken and sung--a fiery crescendo of conviction, inspiration, and joy. Filmed in the recording studio, in concert at Bolling Air Force base, and at Green’s church in Memphis, Tenn., powered by his energy, honesty, and incandescent smile, this is an indelible portrait of an artist who takes you higher.
