Prez Hall and The Woods Hole Film Festival have teamed up to bring you 4 fantastic music documentaries this winter, screening January through April. Our series kickoff celebrates the life and unlikely journey to soul stardom of MISS SHARON JONES!, directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple (HARLAN COUNTY USA). Don't miss this inspiring film about musical artist Sharon Jones, a powerhouse vocalist who finally found success - and a purpose - after years of hearing from music industry execs that she didn't fit the image of a marketable soul singer. She proved the industry wrong and went on to make several hit albums on her own label, touring extensively with her band the Dap-Kings. After receiving a pancreatic cancer diagnosis in 2013, Sharon remarkably returned to the stage and continued to deliver foot-stomping, uplifting shows to her ever expanding fan base, until she could no longer physically perform in late 2016. Sharon's amazing spirit, dedication to music and perseverance has served as a profoundly moving message to all. Limited seating and one screening only - get your tickets now! BUY TICKETS HERE
