USA | 115 minutes | PG | online screening | Dir. Don McGlynn
As part of Black History Month, we've collaborated with the Black Cultural Center here on UW-Madison's campus to bring you a free online screening of 2010's spectacular musical documentary, Rejoice and Shout. This is the first of two films that we will be making available for free viewing as part of Black History Month, so be sure to keep your eyes open for the second one the weekend of February 14th!
About Rejoice and Shout: Through the words of clergy members and musicians, this documentary shows the deep connection between faith and gospel music. But this film is more than just a Christian testimonial; with insight provided by music legends like Smokey Robinson and Mavis Staples and copious doses of archival footage, it explores the history of gospel. Chronicling the genre from its early 20th-century beginnings up to the present day, the documentary also shows that the art form isn't strictly meant for the pious.
Like some of our previous online screenings, to view this movie, reply to the google form below. The film will be available for 48 hours from Saturday the 7th to Sunday the 8th where it can be viewed anytime with that window.
