Unheard Interviews, Restored Footage Anchor New Billie Holiday Documentary Trailer

A new documentary, Billie, will delve into the life of jazz great Billie Holiday with the help of hours of never-before-heard interviews.

The project is centered around 200 hours of previously unreleased interviews that Linda Lipnack Kuehl conducted during the Sixties for a biography of Holiday that was never finished. The tapes feature conversations about Holiday with fellow legends like Tony Bennett, Charles Mingus, Sylvia Syms and Count Basie, as well as others in Holiday’s life — from high school friends, lawyers and pimps to the federal agents who targeted and arrested the singer on narcotics charges.

Billie will dig into Holiday’s remarkable musical career, as well as her cultural impact and activism, with the new trailer specifically highlighting her 1939 classic protest song, “Strange Fruit.” The clip also showcases the restored and newly colorized archival photographs and videos that will be paired with the hours of unreleased interviews.
