Little Richard: I Am Everything,” a documentary by Lisa Cortés about the pioneering Rock n’ Roll musician, will hit theaters for a special one-night-only screening on April 11th before a wider theatrical release on April 21st (the film will be available for digital/on-demand services that same day).

The film, which premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, tells Little Richard’s story while simultaneously exploring the Black queer origins of Rock music and how it was successfully whitewashed throughout American pop culture.

There are also interviews with an array of the artists Richard influenced, from Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney to filmmaker John Waters.
