Two-time Academy Award winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple returns to the MFF with MISS SHARON JONES!, a portrait of one of the most fiery and talented performers working today. In 2014, on the eve of the band launching a new album, Ms. Jones faces her greatest challenge yet; a cancer diagnosis that brings her career to a stand still.

MISS SHARON JONES! documents the singer’s battle to not only heal her body but continue to drive the Dap Kings toward the musical summit. Filled with incredible performances, laughs, tears and plenty of inspiration, we are proud to present MISS SHARON JONES! as our Closing Night Film.
