Patrinell: The Total Experience Screening

  • Northwest Film Forum 1515 12th Avenue Seattle, WA, 98122 United States (map)

LANGSTON is proudly partnering with Northwest Film Forum’s 22nd Annual Local Sightings Film Festival to present ‘Patrinell: The Total Experience’! Seattle’s extraordinarily gifted “First Lady of Gospel”, Rev. Patrinell Staten Wright, struggles to maintain the world-famous Total Experience Gospel Choir that she has directed for 45 years despite the exodus of African Americans from the rapidly gentrifying, historically black neighborhood of Seattle’s Central District. Fiercely independent, strong-willed and outspoken, she confronts bigotry, patriarchy, and social injustice along an uphill journey to share faith and build community through music.
