Nick Broomfield’s documentary, Whitney: Can I Be Me, debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival. Broomfield’s film explores the hard questions about Houston’s life including her battle with drugs, fame, relationships and the burden of being the financial backbone of her family. The trailer suggests that Houston’s death went beyond her medical conditions and was the result of a deep unhappiness. It’s not Broomfield’s first time making an anti-glamour documentary about a musician because of Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love, Tupac and Biggie being past subjects. Whitney: Can I Be Me will debut on Showtime August 26th.
