Amazon MGM Studios has acquired the international rights to a documentary about our national singer Celine Dion, who, as we know, remains away from the stage due to illness. Filming lasted a year and the result, which will focus on the rigid person syndrome (RPS) that she suffers from, can be seen in 240 countries and territories around the world.
I am: Céline Dion will focus on the biggest fight in the life of the 55-year-old artist, who, due to RPD-related spasms, has been unable to sing for two years. As we know, Celine Dion wants more than anything to return to the stage, she who had to give up an international tour and a new residency in Las Vegas due to SPR.
“These past few years have been very challenging for me, from discovering the disease to learning to live with and manage it, without letting it define me,” Celine Dion said in a statement Tuesday.
“As I return to my career, I realize how much I missed being able to see my amateurs. During my absence I wanted to document this part of my life to raise awareness about this little-known disease and help people who share this diagnosis.
The curious will thus have access to the haute couture wardrobe and personal effects of the superstar who has sold more than 250 million albums since his debut at the age of 13. We will also find her in the recording studio and we will see unpublished moments of her private life, we promise, saying that the documentary will be a “moving, dynamic and poetic love letter to music.”
“Celine Dion is an international megastar whose career is defined not only by her extraordinary work ethic and passion, but also by her great dedication to her work. amateurs“said Jennifer Salke, director of Amazon MGM Studios.
“This documentary is a raw and intimate portrait of an important period in his personal life and career, lifting the veil on his journey as he overcomes an unthinkable diagnosis,” he added. The trust he has given us is an honor and we look forward to sharing his story with Prime Video subscribers around the world.”
Produced by Sony Music Vision, in association with Sony Music Entertainment Canada and Vermilion Films, and directed by Irene Taylor, the documentary I am: Céline Dion will be released on the platform shortly, but no date has been revealed at the moment.
