HBO announced yesterday that their HBO Original documentary Love To Love You, Donna Summer, directed by Oscar and Emmy-winning filmmaker Roger Ross Williams (Life Animated, HBO’s The Apollo) and Brooklyn Sudano, daughter of Donna Summer, will debut May 2023 on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.
Shaped by Summer’s own reflections, the memories of close family, friends and colleagues, and filled with the sounds of Summer’s songs, the documentary 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 and artistry 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.
The film will have its world premiere at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival (February 16-26, 2023).
