Vibrant Full Trailer for HBO's 'Tina' Documentary About Tina Turner
"I had an abusive life. There's no other way to tell the story… Buddhism was a way out." HBO has debuted an official full-length trailer for a new music doc called Tina, profiling the legendary singer Tina Turner. This definitive documentary just premiered at the Berlin Film Festival last week, and arrives on HBO for viewing later this month. Rave reviews already! Made by the Academy Award-winning filmmakers behind the docs Undefeated, I Am Dying, and L.A. 92 previously. Featuring a wealth of never-before-seen footage, audio tapes, photos, and new interviews, including with the singer herself, Tina presents an unvarnished and dynamic account of the life and career of a music icon. Angela Bassett, Oprah Winfrey, journalist Kurt Loder, playwright Katori Hall and Tina's husband Erwin Bach are among the interviews in the intimate documentary. This looks superb! The final shot is epic. "Get to know the woman behind the name."
