LITTLE RICHARD: I AM EVERYTHING, Lisa Cortes’s Sundance opening night documentary about the incomparable, illustrious, explosive Richard Penniman – internationally known as Little Richard, rock n roll’s most dynamic forefather and icon - has it's nationwide one-night Premiere on April 11th before hitting theaters April 21.
“The definitive documentary on a complicated icon.” Toronto Star
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.
