Doc'n Roll Festival: Betty: They Say I'm Different + Q&A at Rough Trade Bristol
Tel: +44 (0)117 929 0383
Funk Queen Betty Davis changed the landscape for female artists in America. An aspiring songwriter from a small steel town, Betty arrived on the '70s scene to break boundaries for women with her daring personality, iconic fashion and outrageous funk music. 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-realized black female pioneer the world failed to understand or appreciate. After years of trying, the elusive Betty, forever the free-spirited Black Power Goddess, finally allowed the filmmakers to creatively tell her story based on their conversations.
