Netflix’s upcoming Taylor Swift documentary Miss Americana, will officially premiere at the 2020 Sundance film festival, Variety reports.
Directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Lana Wilson (After Tiller, The Departure), the film is described as a “raw and emotionally revealing look at one of the most iconic artists of our time during a transformational period in her life as she learns to embrace her role not only as a songwriter and performer, but as a woman harnessing the full power of her voice.”
The feature doc is set to premiere on the first day of the Sundance Film Festival on 23 January in Park City, Utah and takes its title from a track off Swift’s recent album Lover, ‘Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince’.
The documentary had been kept under wraps until Swift made a statement last month saying that she was unable to use older songs from her catalogue for the film due to a dispute with the new owner of her masters. According to Variety, a source has confirmed her music has been cleared to use in the documentary.
It’s been a banner year for the pop icon. She’s been nominated for three Grammy nominations that include ‘Song Of The Year’ for ‘Lover’, the title track off her No.1 album, as well as, ‘Best Pop Solo Performance’ for ‘You Need To Calm Down’ and ‘Best Pop Vocal Album’ for Lover.
She’s also set to appear in the highly-anticipated film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s beloved stage musical CATS, for which she contributed the new original song ‘Beautiful Ghosts’ for the soundtrack. The acclaimed singer-songwriter was also recently named ‘Artist Of The Decade’ at the American Music Awards, where she performed a career-spanning medley of her hits. Following her AMA appearance, Swift released a dance mix of ‘Lover’, based the arrangement from her performance.
