The two minute coup is the first public look at the film directed by Academy Award-nominee Liz Garbus, following its premiere at Sundance in January.
The documentary tells the story of Simone’s career and tortured psyche through a never-before-seen interview with Simone and other rare interviews, including her daughter Lisa Simone Kelly, her ex-husband Andrew Stroud and her guitarist and musical director of 42 years, Al Shackman.
The film also includes previously unreleased recordings and rare archival footage, that are on full display through the trailer. Soundtracked to her “Feeling Good” and “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood,” the clip gives a brief glimpse at what a dynamic and talented artist she was.
