    Synopsis:
    WHITNEY is the intimate, definitive account of the superstar’s life and career, authored by renowned Oscar®-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald. The only film officially supported by the late singer’s estate, it includes previously unreleased recordings, rare never-before-seen footage and live performances recorded by Houston at various stages her life, as well as original studio recordings and acapellas of some of the late singer’s greatest hits. Because the filmmakers had access to vast archives of the Houston estate, the film also contains personal home movie footage that has never been seen publicly before, offering a rare glimpse of Whitney’s life behind-the-scenes as known only to her closest relatives, friends and collaborators.

    Academy Award®-winner Kevin Macdonald (MARLEY, TOUCHING THE VOID, ONE DAY IN SEPTEMBER, THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND), Academy Award®-winning producer Simon Chinn (MAN ON WIRE, SEARCHING FOR SUGARMAN), and his Lightbox co-founder Emmy® Awardwinning producer Jonathan Chinn (LA 92, FANTASTIC LIES) and multi-Emmy® Award nominated and Happy Street Entertainment co-founder Lisa Erspamer (RUNNING FROM CRAZY) tell the unvarnished and authentic story of the late icon’s life in a film that examines both the meteoric highs and devastating lows of her remarkable and unforgettable career. Patricia Houston, Nicole David, Zanne Devine, Rosanne Korenberg, Joe Patrick, and Altitude Film Entertainment’s Will Clarke, Andy Mayson, and Mike Runagall executive produced.
