IN-EDIT is back! From 13 to 23 April the fifth edition of the music documentary festival takes place at the Melkweg. Again many great music films will be screened this year, like this documentary about singer and pianist Little Richard, who passed away in 2020.

Lisa Cortés' film challenges challenges the suppressed legacy of American pop music while honouring the Black, queer roots of rock 'n' roll. The film presents insights from prominent musicians, scholars, cultural icons, Little Richards inner circle, and includes interviews with the artist himself. The documentary features unique archival footage of Richard and other Black and queer trailblazers, portraying the artist's intricate life journey amidst the racial and sexual turmoil of his era. The film underscores the ability of marginalized and ostracized individuals to forge new realities where everyone can dance.
