“Miss Sharon Jones” a Documentary

September 9, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 7:00 pm, repeating until September 15, 2016

“Miss Sharon Jones” (2016): Color. 93 minutes. Directed by Barbara Kopple opens Friday September 9th.
Trailer: https://youtu.be/t7eNSgCQzCI

Kopple’s film presents an extraordinarily talented and lovable woman maintaining her dignity in the face of whatever daunting obstacles she encounters. Sandwiched between the singer’s sparkling performances onstage, Jones battles pancreatic cancer with a the-show-must-go-on spirit that makes the film more than just another documentary about a singer/musician.

Jones, who has been called the “female James Brown,” is a widely acclaimed soul performer and former Rikers prison guard who has delighted Richmond audiences for years, most recently with another high-energy show at Innsbrook this summer (a week after completing a round of chemo).

The documentary, which follows her fight with cancer, was directed by Oscar-winner Barbara Kopple, known for the legendary 1970s documentary “Harlan County, USA” which covered violent coalminer strikes in Kentucky.
