Trailer for music documentary ‘Love to Love You, Donna Summer’ which premiered in Berlin

HBO has released the official trailer for Donna Summer music documentary Love to Love You, Donna Summer which premiered at this year’s Berlinale back in February. The film is directed by Roger Ross Williams and Brooklyn Sudano (Summer’s daughter) and will premiere on HBO Max stateside on 20th May. I presume this’ll pop up on UK screens shortly afterward.

Shaped by Summer’s own reflections, the memories of close family, friends and colleagues, and filled with the sounds of Summer’s songs, Love to Love You, Donna Summer is an in-depth look at the iconic artist as she creates music that takes her from the avant-garde music scene in Germany, to the glitter and bright lights of dance clubs in New York, to worldwide acclaim, her voice becoming the defining soundtrack of an era. A deeply personal portrait of Summer on and off the stage, the film features a wealth of photographs and never-before-seen home video footage – often shot by Summer herself – and provides a rich window into the surprising range of her artistry, from songwriting to painting, while exploring the highs and lows of a life lived on the global stage.

Featured in the documentary are her three daughters, Brooklyn Sudano, Mimi Dohler and Amanda Sudano Ramirez; husband, Bruce Sudano; her siblings, Dara Bernard, Mary Ellen Bernard and Ric Gaines. Also included are her first husband Helmuth Sommer, manager Susan Munao, band member Bob Conti, producer Giorgio Moroder.

Here’s the trailer.
