Trailer: Whitney – A Whitney Houston Documentary

  • Posted 3 weeks Ago

Directed by Oscar winner Kevin MacDonald (who also directed Bob Marley film Marley), Whitney is the first documentary to be approved by the estate of Whitney Houston since the singer's death. In 2012, she was found unconscious in the bathtub of a Beverly Hilton Hotel suite, aged 48. The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office later announced the death was caused by drowning, heart disease, and cocaine use.

The documentary premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year and features previously unseen archival footage, interviews with family members, rare live performances, and unreleased songs. It doesn't "shy away from the darker parts of Whitney’s life – her descent into addiction," says MacDonald. "I want to reveal a woman that even her most die-hard fans never knew; and a woman those new to her life and music will never forget. She changed the way pop music was sung – bringing it back full circle to its blues and gospel roots."

Cinema release is set for 6 July.
