Watch the New Trailer for Barbara Kopple’s ‘Miss Sharon Jones!’

Documentary icon Barbara Kopple returns in top form with the new film Miss Sharon Jones!. A new trailer hits the web for Kopple’s latest film ahead of its release this summer. Miss Sharon Jones! chronicles the tumultuous career of soul singer Sharon Jones in her illustrious work performing with her band the Dap Kings and her battles overcoming numerous barriers in the cutthroat industry of show business. The doc, a highlight from last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, observes Jones as she encounters her latest fight on the road to success: cancer, which she kicks in the butt with gusto.

Back at TIFF, we said Miss Sharon Jones! marked “four decades of superior filmmaking” for Kopple since her doc landmark Harlan County USA and called the film ‘an inspiring portrait of how music sustains us and gives us life.’ Miss Sharon Jones! opens in New York on July 29 and rolls out in additional cities in the coming months.
