BETTY: THEY SAY I'M DIFFERENT + Q&A

Dir: Phil Cox
United Kingdom / France / 2017 / 54mins

Betty Davis changed the landscape for female artists in America. An aspiring songwriter from a small steel town, Betty arrived on the 70’s music scene to break boundaries for women of colour with her daring personality, iconic fashion and unforgettable funk music. A pioneer of feminism and Black Power, she became the first black female artist to perform, write and manage herself. 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-realised superstar.

Director Phil Cox & Producer Giovanna Stopponi will join for a post screening conversation and Q&A hosted by film and music critic Soma Ghosh.
