DAY SIX Sunday 11th September 2016 (all-day event)
Film: What Happened, Miss Simone?
Femme Filmmaker: Liz Garbus
The title What Happened, Miss Simone? was a question asked by Maya Angelou, and documentary film-maker Liz Garbus strives to perhaps answer this, but also shine some light on the illustrious singer and cultural icon. The well-received feature-length account opens many doors, with archive footage, interviews with those that knew and admired Nina Simone, but also you get to savor performances by the artist.
Cast (footage): Nina Simone; James Baldwin; Langston Hughes; Lorraine Hansberry; Hugh Hefner
Country: United States
Duration: 101 minutes

Netflix US — free

Distributed by Netflix means this is hardly available anywhere else. Which is great, mean you are going to have to watch the documentary for free. I know on Sunday you might be tired from the week gone by, but I still implore you all to get involved, watch the movie at your own leisure, and send us your thoughts.
