Miss Sharon Jones!

Recommended Posts

Was super fortunate to get to interview Barbara Kopple this week about her latest film. Here's the link over at NCFCA website:

 

Quote

The director notes without prompting that many of her subjects–Sharon Jones, Mariel Hemingway, Natalie Means–are women who have had to exercise their resolve in the face of daunting adversity.  From where does that strength come from? In Jones’s case Kopple speculates a connection between the performer’s “inner strength” and “her religion.” The film neither shies away from nor particularly proselytizes for that religion. Here, as with Shut Up and Sing!, Kopple deftly balances intimacy and advocacy with enough detachment to allow her to handle potentially polarizing subjects in a productive and engaging manner.
