Funk Queen Betty Davis documentary
time:16:00
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Dir. Phil Cox, 2017, UK, 52 min

Q&A with the film’s Editor

Funk Queen Betty Davis changed the landscape for female artists in America. An aspiring songwriter from a small steel town, Betty arrived on the ‘70s scene to break boundaries for women with her daring personality, iconic fashion and outrageous funk music. Then suddenly – she vanished.

Creatively blending documentary and animation this movie traces the path of Betty’s life, how she grew from humble upbringings to become a fully self-realized black female pioneer the world failed to understand or appreciate. After years of trying, the elusive Betty, forever the free-spirited Black Power Goddess, finally allowed the filmmakers to creatively tell her story based on their conversations.

Doc’n Roll Film Festival is supported by the BFI using funds from the National Lottery to grow audience appetite and enjoyment for a wide range of independent British and international films.
