Miss Sharon Jones (2015) – [framed] Documentary Film Series


Date & Time: 
Apr 20 2017 - 7:30pm - 9:30pm

As part of our [framed] documentary series, Next Stage
Arts presents “Miss Sharon Jones” (2015)
Best Documentary, Sarasota Film
Festival 2016

After years in obscurity, Jones finally broke-through in her
forties and has been hailed as a modern-day female James Brown. The film
chronicles her struggle to hold her band “The Dap Kings” together while battling a cancer diagnosis as she finds her way
back to the stage with the unstoppable determination of a true soul survivor. (1h 33m)

Presented by filmmaker Barbara Kopple. The
screening will be followed by a Q&A. 

The films in the [framed] series have recently played on the
festival circuit around the world including Sundance and Tribeca, and all have
been recognized with festival honors. The eclectic lineup explores a wide range
of issues including gender, incarceration, beauty, otherness, greed, and the
role of family and tradition.

Curator Nancy Schafer worked for the iconic Tribeca Film
Festival for 11 years, where she was most recently the festival’s executive
director. Schafer and Next Stage co-founder Billy Straus met at the Camden
International Film Festival in 2015 where Schafer serves on the advisory board,
and the idea of programming a documentary series for Next Stage was born.
