BUCKSPORT — Bucksport’s Wednesday On Main Summer Series will present the Aretha Franklin documentary “Amazing Grace” 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14, at Alamo Theatre, 85 Main St. Free.

Filmed in two days at the New Bethel Baptist Church, with a crew of film and sound engineers, all directed by Sydney Pollack.  Because of severe technical glitches, this film just couldn’t get finished until 2007, when Pollack, dying of cancer, handed the project to Alan Elliott.

The result is the long-awaited, incredible film showing 30-year old Franklin’s return to her gospel roots. The resulting album sold over 2 million copies in US & remains the highest selling live gospel album of all time, and is one of Franklin’s best selling albums.
