Revealing the real Nina Simone through over 50 intimate interviews with those who best knew the artistry and intentions of one of America’s true musical geniuses

Much beloved and often misunderstood, the story of America’s most overlooked musical genius is finally brought to light in The Amazing Nina Simone. Director Jeff L. Lieberman (Re-Emerging: The Jews of Nigeria) brings audiences on Nina’s journey from the segregated South, through the worlds of classical music, jazz joints & international concert halls. Navigating through the twists & turns of the 1960’s fight for racial equality, the film delves deep into Nina’s artistry and intentions, answering long-held questions behind Nina’s most beloved songs, bold style, controversial statements, and the reason she left America.
