Synopsis

For years, Bishop (Noel Jones) has presided over his South Central L.A. congregation with equal parts passion and compassion, and director Sophie Fiennes captures a four-month sample of his sermons in the documentary Hoover Street Revival. Though primarily consisting of the Bishop's fiery speeches to his flock at the Greater Bethany Community Church -- backed by the sounds of a full gospel choir -- the film also drops in on Jones' life in the neighborhood. Fiennes is able to make a link between events both tragic and hopeful and the way Jones chooses to present them in church. The director and her subject both have successful siblings themselves: Fiennes is the sister of actor Ralph Fiennes; Jones is the big brother of legendary vocalist Grace Jones. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi
