Magnolia Footage has unveiled the official trailer for Little Richard: I Am Every thing, a brand new documentary that focuses on the enduring rock n’ roll musician. Test it out under.
In line with a press launch, the Lisa Cortés-film “tells the story of the Black queer origins of rock n’ roll, exploding the whitewashed canon of American pop music to disclose the innovator – the originator – Richard Penniman. Via a wealth of archive and efficiency that brings us into Richard’s sophisticated interior world, the movie unspools the icon’s life story with all its switchbacks and contradictions. In interviews with household, musicians, and cutting-edge Black and queer students, the movie reveals how Richard created an artwork type for final self-expression, but what he gave to the world he was by no means in a position to give to himself.”
