Documentary x2: Billie

Boras Cinema Röda Kvarn, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

Billie Holiday's talent took her from a difficult childhood marked by poverty, drugs and prostitution to becoming one of the 20th century's greatest and most pioneering artists. Although her upbringing caught up with her and she relapsed into addiction, she never gave up her music. No matter how tough her private life was, she maintained her intense presence on stage, right down to the last.

James Erskine's documentary contains never before shown material and depicts Billie Holiday as a star against all odds, whose life story echoes all the way to more contemporary artists such as Amy Winehouse and Whitney Houston.
