Using never-before-heard recordings, rare archival footage and her best-known songs, What Happened, Ms. Simone? is the story of legendary singer and activist Nina Simone. The Grammy Award-nominated 2015 documentary film directed by Liz Garbus and titled after a Maya Angelou quote is presented here on blu-ray disc for the first time complete with a bonus CD featuring the classics "I Loves You Porgy," "Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out," "I Put A Spell On You," "My Baby Just Cares For Me," and "Feeling Good," among others!
"The risk of making a documentary of a towering artist is that, by explaining her, you only end up diminishing her. Not Nina Simone – not this time. In Liz Garbus's telling, Simone's talent and personality shine through, as gloriously singular, and uncontrollable, as ever." - Michael Hogan, Vanity Fair
