Netflix is producing What Happened, Miss Simone?, the new film from Academy Award nominated filmmaker Liz Garbus.

Classically trained pianist, dive-bar chanteuse, black power icon and legendary recording artist, Nina Simone lived a life of brutal honesty, musical genius, and tortured melancholy.

In this new documentary, director Liz Garbus interweaves never-before-heard recordings and rare archival footage together with Nina’s most memorable songs, to create an unforgettable portrait of one of the least understood, yet most beloved, artists of our time.

The film will premiere exclusively in all territories where Netflix is available in 2015.
