Whitney: Can I Be Me
From the age of 15, Whitney Houston began to enter the world of music. In 1983, she signed a contract with Clive David from Arista Records. From then on, she began a life of excess, luxury, fame, drugs, and many scandals.
The documentary pays special attention to her relationships with her mother, father, husband and daughter, as well as her former best friend Robyn Crawford. It also addresses the singer's history of drug use, including overdose allegations in the 1990s, her early days as a gospel singer, her discovery by Arista Records boss Clive Davis, and key moments such as the releases of her debut album in 1985 and the film The Bodyguard in 1992.
The film tells the story of the life and death of Whitney Houston, who marked a before and after in the history of music. It has been made with archival footage of the artist, from her concerts, interviews and home videos.

It Was Fifty Years Ago Today
Woodstock 99: Peace Love and Rage
This three-day music festival was promoted to echo unity and counterculture idealism of the original 1969 concert but instead devolved into riots, looting and sexual assaults. The film documents the notorious music festival like an unravelling horror film to visceral effect, presenting a flashpoint in cultural nadir while suggesting that it was also a sign of troubles to come.
Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound
The documentary reveals the hidden power of sound in film and in our lives through interviews, film clips and a look at its actual process of creation and discovery. It captures the history, impact and creative process of this art form with insightful, poignant and entertaining stories told by legendary sound designers and visionary directors, and the sound artists they collaborate with who create the magic in all the films we love.
George Michael: Freedom
George Michael is honored in a fine documentary released in October 2017, a film he wrote and directed and supervised about his life in show business before his death on Christmas Day 2016. The film was completed under David Austin's direction. The movie is a frank and honest account of George Michael's professional life and career. Though the film, various artists add to the narrative – Tony Bennett, Mary J. Blige, Emmanuelle Alt, Naomi Campbell, Ricky Gervais, Elton John, Liam Gallagher, Cindy Crawford, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Kate Moss Nile Rodgers, James Corden, Stevie Wonder, and many others.
The film highlights conversations with Michael, his crisis with Sony, his 'coming out' as a gay man, his driving force to be the best performer and songwriter ever known, his many successful videos and clips from live performances and much, much more. This is a very beautifully made film, steaming with love from Michael and from his many fans, and filled with information about the positive impact he made on the world. Completely entertaining and a fine tribute to an enormously gifted artist.
