A powerhouse of a performer often called “the female James Brown,” R&B dynamo Sharon Jones is a 4’11” giant among her peers, with voice and physical energy that have earned her legions of fans. For years she was kept in the wings by a music industry that branded her “too short, too fat,” but her career really took off after joining forces with Brooklyn R&B/soul/funk outfit The Dap-Kings. In 2013, on the eve of the release of their album Give the People What They Want, Jones was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Two-time Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Barbara Kopple (Harlan County USA and American Dream) follows her during the most courageous period of her life, in this triumphant crowd-pleaser tracing her battle back to where she belongs: center stage. Producer/Director: Barbara Kopple. (US 2016) 94 min.
