Showing Nov 19th: Little Richard: I Am Everything


As part of the Middlebury New Filmmakers FestivalLittle Richard: I Am Everything tells the remarkable story of the Black queer origins of rock n’ roll, exploding the whitewashed canon of American pop music to reveal the innovator – the originator – Richard Penniman.  Through a wealth of archival materials and performances that bring 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, Little Richard: I Am Everything 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.
