Much beloved and often misunderstood, Nina Simone (1933–2003) is one of America’s most overlooked musical geniuses. The Amazing Nina Simone finally illustrates her story, through interviews with musicians, friends, and family members. The documentary follows Simone from the segregated South of the 1960s and the fight for racial equality to the worlds of classical music, jazz joints, and international concert halls—all while delving into her artistry and intentions, and answering long-held questions about Simone's songs and controversial statements, and the reason she left America.
