Billie

Allowed 94 minutes 2019 6.8

Her extraordinary singing voice took Billie Holiday out of a difficult childhood marked by poverty, drugs, and prostitution. She became one of the 20th century's greatest and most pioneering artists. Despite relapses and scandals exposed by the press, she never gave up her music and maintained her intense presence on stage. James Erskine's (The Human face, Shooting for Socrates) documentary contains never before seen material, and portrays Billie Holiday as a star against all odds.
