We will be joined by director Kevin MacDonald for a Q&A following the preview screening of Whitney at 17:50 on Thu 5 Jul. Chaired by Kirsty Fairclough, Associate Dean, School of Arts and Media, University of Salford.
Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald and from two-time Academy Award-winning producer Simon Chinn, Whitney will give audiences an unprecedented and unique look into Houston’s life. It’s an unflinching and honest portrait of a rare talent told by those closest to her and one made with full access to her family and collaborators. By casting her story and her work in a new and revealing light, the film reassesses the life and legacy of one of music’s biggest stars.
Listen back to Academy Award winning Director Kevin MacDonald discuss the challenges and revelations that came with putting together his new documentary Whitney, recorded during his recent visit to HOME.
