Netflix’s Nina Simone Doc ‘What Happened, Miss Simone?’ Gets a Great, Dramatic Trailer


Nina Simone was a powerful force to be reckoned with, strong on politics and even stronger on expressing her views, on stage or off. Netflix’s new documentary, What Happened, Miss Simone?, is focusing on the music, yeah, but will also take a thorough look at the tempestuous nature of Simone’s relationship with everyone from herself to her daughter and the public.

What Happened, Miss Simone?, directed by Academy Award-nominated Liz Garbus (Killing In The Name), is an authorized doc — meaning it was made in cooperation with Simone’s family and close colleagues. With a release date set for June 26, it’ll feature some unheard recordings and unseen footage of Simone, and will definitely be worth checking out.
