First Look: “What Happened, Miss Simone?”

Discover the truth behind the legend in the trailer for Netflix’s Original Documentary, WHAT HAPPENED, MISS SIMONE? which will premiere in all territories where Netflix is available June 26 alongside select theaters.

The film, by Academy Award®-nominated director Liz Garbus, uses never-before-heard audio tapes, recorded over the course of three decades, of Nina telling her life story to various interviewers and would-be biographers. From over 100 hours of these recordings, WHAT HAPPENED, MISS SIMONE? weaves together Nina’s narrative, told largely in her own words. Rare concert footage and archival interviews, along with diaries, letters, interviews with Nina’s daughter, Lisa Simone Kelly, friends and collaborators, along with other exclusive materials, make this the most authentic, personal, and unflinching telling of the extraordinary life of one of the 20th Century’s greatest recording artists.
