Netflix launch debut trailer for Liz Garbus’s WHAT HAPPENED, MISS SIMONE?
The Fan Carpet are excited to share with you the debut trailer for Liz Garbus’s Nina Simone feature documentary WHAT HAPPENED, MISS SIMONE?, which will be launched on Netflix June 26.
The documentary is an amazing introduction into the life of Nina Simone, who as well as being a global music superstar was also a mother, wife and activist. The documentary showcases the musical talent, vision and complexity of Nina Simone through an array of never before seen footage, interviews and journal entries.
The film, by Academy Award®-nominated director Liz Garbus, uses never-before-heard audio tapes, recorded over the course of three decades, of Nina telling her life story to various interviewers and would-be biographers. From over 100 hours of these recordings, WHAT HAPPENED, MISS SIMONE? weaves together Nina’s narrative, told largely in her own words. Rare concert footage and archival interviews, along with diaries, letters, interviews with Nina’s daughter, Lisa Simone Kelly, friends and collaborators, along with other exclusive materials, make this the most authentic, personal, and unflinching telling of the extraordinary life of one of the 20th Century's greatest recording artists.
