THINK FREEDOM - With Aretha Franklin at the Soul Food Café

A video tribute to Aretha Franklin (1942-2018) and the constantly surprising cinematic performance of her 1968 song 'Think' in THE BLUES BROTHERS (US 1980). The video takes the form of an audiovisual infographic on John Landis's dynamic filming of the song scene, starring Franklin as irrepressible Mrs. Murphy..
