Storyline

In this up-close and personal portrait of vocalist and musician Nina Simone, the singer herself and a number of friends, relatives and connaisseurs tell excerpts of her path in music and life. Remarkably, the documentary was able to follow Simone on a visit back to her childhood home, and her mother and siblings are interviewed. Simone also discusses her participation in the civil rights movement and voices opinions that would be controversial then and now. Ultimately, this is a strong portrayal of the pain that was Nina Simone's. Written by Peter Brandt Nielsen
