Little Richard: I Am Everything

April 11, 2023 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Director Lisa Cortรฉsโ€™ Sundance opening night documentary Little Richard: I Am Everything tells the story of the Black queer origins of rock nโ€™ roll, exploding the whitewashed canon of American pop music to reveal the innovator โ€“ the originator โ€“ Richard Penniman. Through a wealth of archive and performance that brings us into Richardโ€™s complicated inner world, the film unspools the iconโ€™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 nโ€™ roll. The world tried to put him in a box, but Richard was an omni being who contained multitudes โ€“ he was unabashedly everything.
