Work-In-Progress Screening – Patrinell: The Total Experience

You are invited to a work-in-progress screening of “Patrinell: The Total Experience” organized by the Seattle Documentary Association. This is a free showing of the entire 90-minute film, and it will be held at the Northwest Film Forum on Sunday, September 2nd at 3PM. There will be an in-depth discussion afterwards where viewers will have a chance to give feedback.

About the Film:
Rev. Patrinell “Pat” Staten Wright, an extraordinarily gifted African-American gospel singer known as “Seattle’s First Lady of Gospel” reminisces about growing up in the segregated South and the glory days of the famed Total Experience Gospel Choir that she has directed for 45 years as she strives to maintain the choir in the rapidly changing, historically black neighborhood of Seattle’s Central District. This is the true story of one woman’s journey to share faith and create community through music.
