Whitney teaser trailer: A new film by documentarian Kevin Macdonald

Last year saw the release of Nick Broomfield's Whitney: Can I Be Me, looking back on the career and death of Whitney Houston, which leant towards trashy exploitation surrounding her death more than a celebration about her life. The first teaser trailer for Whitney - a new documentary by director Kevin Macdonald (Marley, The King of Scotland) - has just been released ahead of it arriving in cinemas later in the year.

This is the only film officially supported by the late singer’s estate, which includes previously unreleased recordings, rare never-before-seen footage and live performances recorded by Houston at various stages of her life, as well as original studio recordings and acapellas of some of the late singer’s greatest hits. Because the filmmakers had access to vast archives of the Houston estate, the film also contains personal home movie footage that has never been seen publicly before, offering a rare glimpse of Whitney’s life behind-the-scenes as known only to her closest relatives, friends and collaborators.

Simon Chinn, the producer who worked on Man on Wire and Waiting for Sugar Man and Jonathan Chinn (LA 92) are also involved in the project.

Whitney arrives in UK cinemas on July 6th 2018.
