Jeff Lieberman's upcoming documentary titled The Amazing Nina Simone: A Documentary Film is NOT to be confused with "the first definitive documentary" on the life of Nina Simone (in collaboration with her estate and daughter, and produced by Jon Kamen, Justin Wilkes and Sidney Beaumont) that we first announced in June of last year.
Lieberman, who helmed the fascinating documentary Re Emerging: The Jews of Nigeria (see our review HERE), confirmed exclusively to S&A that his upcoming project on legendary Priestess of Soul Nina Simone has begun post-production.
The director first began consulting with Simone's daughter, but soon after decided to take a more independent approach, and ended up becoming involved with the late singer's siblings, friends and band members.
Below are some more details that Lieberman revealed on the production, which should release its first trailer in the next month or two:
It should be interesting, especially since Leiberman is going the "independent" route with his documentary. As mentioned earlier, the first trailer of The Amazing Nina Simone should surface in the next month or two.
