An honest portrait of a unique talent, who had the voice of an angel, but was torn apart by her demons. Made with full access to her collaborators and her body of work, WHITNEY reassesses the legacy of one of music’s biggest stars.

Time & Tickets

With over 200 million album sales worldwide, and the only artist ever to chart seven consecutive US No.1’s, Whitney Houston was the voice of a generation. She inspired a generation of singers from Mariah Carey to Beyoncé and her unforgettable performance of The Star-Spangled Banner unlocked an anthem that had for so long been dismissed by many black artists.

But all these achievements have become a footnote to a story of addiction and self-destruction. Salacious stories filled the columns of tabloid papers and magazines.
Directed by Kevin Macdonald (MARLEY, TOUCHING THE VOID), WHITNEY is an unflinching and honest portrait of a rare talent told by those closest to her. Made with full access to her family and collaborators, the film showcases exclusive audio and never-before-seen video archive from her time as a recording artist and performer.

Kevin Macdonald, USA, 2018, 120 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Whitney Houston, Kevin Costner, Bobby Brown.
