Preview: Whitney: Can I Be Me + Satellite Q&A 15
Made with largely never-seen-before footage and exclusive live recordings, this is a fascinating insight into Whitney Houston, one of music's biggest legends.
Documentarian Nick Broomfield and music video director Rudi Dolezal look at the height of Houston's stardom and trace the forces that contributed to her shortened career and subsequent death in 2012, at age 48. Even though Whitney had made millions of dollars, had more consecutive number ones than the Beatles, and become recognised as having one of the greatest voices of all time, Broomfield and Dolezal make it clear she was never free to be herself.
An unflinching, gripping look at talent given and taken away, this is Whitney's incredible life story told with insights from those closest to her.
Followed by a Satellite Q&A with director Nick Broomfield, and a tribute performance by Michelle John. We will screen Whitney: Can I Be Me from Fri 16 June for at least one week.
