Patrinell: The Total Experience is a feature-length independent documentary film about Rev. Patrinell “Pat” Staten Wright, an extraordinarily gifted African-American gospel singer who grew up in the segregated South and now strives to maintain the world-famous Total Experience Gospel Choir that she has directed for 45 years in the rapidly changing, historically black neighborhood of Seattle’s Central District.
This is the true story of one woman’s journey to share faith and create community through music.
Patrinell: The Total Experience’s holistic approach to storytelling makes it not just a well-made feature film but an actual act of communal care. The film beautifully resonates the mission of a woman and community who refuse to be erased, forgotten and displaced.–Mia Imani Harrison, artist, activist, and arts writer
