Expected to attend Q&A Following 4/29 6:15 PM Screening: Lisa Cortés (director, producer)
LITTLE RICHARD: I AM EVERYTHING explodes the whitewashed American rock n' roll canon revealing the Black queer originator at its center - Richard Penniman. This trove of archival and performance footage, interviews of family, peers, and trailblazing Black and queer scholars reveals how Richard created an art form as an ultimate act of self-expression. MFF alum Lisa Cortés guides us through the rollicking career of a man careening between God, sex, and rock n' roll.
