Jones Family Will Make A Way
With director Alan Berg and a special post-screening performance by the Jones Family Singers!
For 30 years, formerly Austin, now Houston-based Bishop Fred Jones and his family have performed on the southern gospel circuit, largely unseen by those outside the Pentecostal faith. When the Bishop, despite objections from many within his faith, decides to take his family’s musical ministry outside the church, he unexpectedly connects with Michael Corcoran – a jaded, atheistic rock critic who also happens to be a gospel historian.
To Corcoran, the Jones Family Singers represent a living link to a style of gospel he thought had disappeared. These unlikely friends bond through their one shared trait — a deeply rooted rebelliousness.
Berg’s film is brimming with both music and a certain religious hope that never bangs you over the head.
