Decades-old documentary of Aretha Franklin to debut Monday

After almost 50 years, a documentary featuring performances by the late Aretha Franklin is set to debut.
 
Amazing Grace will premiere Monday at the DOC NYC festival in New York.
 
Franklin died in August after battling pancreatic cancer. She was 76.
 
The singer's estate and the film's producer, Alan Elliott, reached an agreement to release the film, which has long been delayed.
 
The documentary was mostly shot by famed director Sydney Pollack and captures Franklin's gospel performances over a two-day period at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles in 1972.
 
The music was released as a double live album, but the film was held because Pollack failed to sync the sound, which made it difficult to edit.
