Director: Kevin Macdonald
Duration: 120 min

In sensitive and unshrinking style, Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald shines new and piercing light on the rise and fall of one of the music industries’ most iconic superstars, Whitney Houston. His documentary deftly chronicles Whitney Houston’s stratospheric rise to stardom on the world stage, and pieces together previously unseen home video, exclusive demo recordings, rare performance footage and interviews with those closest to the ballad-belting diva. Underlying the starry story is the darker side of Whitney Houston's life: a turbulent marriage to American rapper Bobby Brown - a possible catalyst to the singer’s self-destructive battle with drug addiction - and some oppressive family secrets. We witness a brilliant career turn to chaos, scandal and the death of woman that moved millions. Revisiting one of the most tragic stories in pop-music history, Whitney is a salient testament to incandescent talent and tragic finales.
