BILLIE HOLIDAY 2015

Billie Holiday's life was a roller-coaster ride and has since been the subject of countless myths, legends and rumours. In recent years, an increasing number of records and stories about her have come to light. Many of them stem from people who accompanied Billie Holiday at different stages of her life.
Comments from confidants, acquaintances and friends call into question many of the myths and reveal a strong personality, a woman who was anything but a pitiful victim of drugs, alcohol, men, skin colour and racial segregation.
This new appreciation of "Lady Day" has never before been revealed in a film. It focuses on stories told by people she was close to, refutes many of the myths and presents a very different, far more realistic portrait of this jazz icon.
