Oscar®-winning director Kevin Macdonald (Marley, Touching The Void) directs this intimate portrait of the work and life of Whitney Houston, one made with full access to her family and collaborators.

With over 200 million album sales worldwide, and remaining the only artist to chart seven consecutive US number ones, Whitney Houston was the voice of a generation. Her achievements, however, have become a footnote to a story of addiction and self-destruction. With salacious stories filling tabloid columns, Whitney had the voice of an angel on stage, but was being torn apart by her demons offstage.

Featuring never before seen audio, archive and home video footage and interviews with many of the major figures in her life (including ex-husband Bobby Brown, her Bodyguard co-star Kevin Costner and the man who discovered her, Arista records boss Clive Davis), Whitney will reassess the life and legacy of one of music’s biggest stars.
