Glimmerglass Film Days Opening Film: Miss Sharon Jones

Glimmerglass Film Days Opening Film:  Miss Sharon Jones

Lead singer for the funk and soul band Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, the fabulous Ms. Jones took a long break on the heels of a stage-two pancreatic cancer diagnosis in 2013 to live in Sharon Springs in the house of a friend while commuting to Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown for chemotherapy. Thus begins the epic tale of a dynamic soul survivor, filmed by two-time Oscar-winning cinema-vérité pioneer Barbara Kopple (her 1976 Harlan County USA was voted one of the greatest documentaries of all time). Kopple chronicled Sharon's life for over a year—from her home base in Brooklyn, to Cooperstown for treatments, to South Carolina for a long family visit (and forays into her earlier life), and then resuming work on her album Give the People What They Want with a dramatic comeback on stage again with the Dap-Kings. This female James Brown had an overwhelming need to resume her life of music—and she never lost her spunk in spite of many glitches. "By the end of this film, what you'll want is more and more of Miss Sharon Jones."—Toronto International Film Festival
