    “Amazing Grace” Film About Aretha Franklin Life Cancelled at Telluride Film Festival

    Aretha Franklin prevailed on Friday in an 11th-hour legal bid to stop the Telluride Film Festival from screening Sydney Pollack’s posthumous documentary “Amazing Grace,” which shows the making of Ms. Franklin’s album of the same name more than four decades ago.

    In a strongly worded emergency order, Judge John L. Kane of the United States District Court for Colorado said Ms. Franklin had “a high likelihood of success on the merits” of her case. “A film that essentially recreates the entire concert experience is not fair use of this footage,” he added.
