FESTIE BESTIE SPOTLIGHT:
HOW SWEET THE SOUND - BLIND BOYS FROM ALABAMA 

Total Run Time: 95:00 
Director: Leslie McCleave
Country of Origin: USA
Synopsis: Directed and Produced by Leslie McCleave  Filmed over the course of ten years, How Sweet the Sound tells the story of The Blind Boys of Alabama. They met as children in the 1930’s at a state-run segregated vocational school and would become one of the last great gospel quartets, traversing the famed “gospel highway” and beyond. As the surviving band members recount their unlikely success story, we see a rare, frank view of life on and off the road with these renowned performers, now in their 70’s and 80’s.
