Direct from Cannes, Oscar winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald’s (Marley, SFF 2012) unflinching and honest portrait of a rare talent, Whitney Houston, told by those closest to her.

With over 200 million album sales worldwide Whitney was the voice of a generation. She seemed destined to be plucked from her New Jersey, gospel-singing roots to rule the world stage. Whitney hit the stratosphere with ‘I Will Always Love You’, from the original soundtrack of The Bodyguard (in which she made her acting debut) and her iconic 1991 Super Bowl performance of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’. But all these achievements have become a footnote to a story of addiction and self-destruction. Macdonald’s documentary, produced by Oscar winner Simon Chinn (Searching for Sugar Man, SFF 2012), was made with full access to her family, including her mother, brothers and collaborators, and features exclusive audio and never-before-seen video archive.
