MAVIS! is the first documentary on gospel/soul music legend and civil rights icon Mavis Staples and her family group, The Staples Singers. From freedom songs in the '60s and hits like "I'll Take You There" in the '70s, to her recent Grammy-winning work with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, Mavis has managed to transform herself as she goes, yet never alters. After 60 years performing, she's making the most vital music of her career, and her message of love and equality is needed now more than ever.
