Oscar winner Kevin Macdonald (‘One Day in September’, ‘Touching the Void’) presents a definitive account of the iconic singer’s life and career.
The only film to receive support from the late singer's estate, Macdonald’s all-encompassing film includes previously unreleased recordings, rare never-before-seen footage and live performances recorded by Houston at various stages of her life, as well as original studio recordings of some of the late singer's greatest hits.
Through the support of the Houston estate, the film also contains personal home movie footage that has never been screened publicly, offering an intimate and unvarnished portrait of success in America and the cost.
