What Happened, Miss Simone?

Wednesday, June 24 - Thursday, November 19, 2015

Classically trained pianist, jazz legend, Black Power icon: Nina Simone is one of the most influential, beloved and yet least understood artists of our time. Utterly free on stage, Simone struggled to reconcile artistic ambition with a fierce devotion to the Civil Rights movement. Given intimate access to her family, friends and archives, Garbus explores Simone’s personal, political and artistic battles to reveal a towering figure who transcended categorization and her era. Opening night: Sundance Film Festival
