One of the most acclaimed music documentaries of all time, SAY AMEN, SOMEBODY is a joyous, funny, deeply emotional celebration of African American culture and history, featuring the father of Gospel, Thomas A. Dorsey ("Precious Lord, Take My Hand"); its matron, Mother Willie Mae Ford Smith; and earth-shaking performances by the Barrett Sisters and the O'Neal Twins. When it was first released, the film received an overwhelming critical response, garnering rave reviews around the world.

Unseen in cinemas for nearly thirty years, SAY AMEN, SOMEBODY has been gorgeously restored in 4K by Milestone Films with support from the National Museum of African American History and Culture and the Academy Film Archive.

One of the most joyful movies I’ve ever seen... One of the best musicals and one of the most interesting documentaries. And it’s also a terrific good time.” -- Roger Ebert

“The film’s mood is never less than marvelously infectious.” -- Time
