Supernatural

Director(s):
Rosylyn Rhee

Stereotypes, language barriers, and strongholds come tumbling down in award-winning filmmaker Rosylyn Rhee's documentary SUPERNATURAL. This moving, and at times humorous story chronicles an unlikely collaboration between an African American pastor and a Japanese choir director and their journey through Japan to teach more than 100 non-English speaking students gospel music. After three months of intense rehearsals and study, the Japanese students perform as a choir at black churches throughout America. In this riveting first-hand account, both African American parishioners and Japanese students are transformed through gospel music's supernatural power.
