The trailer for Whitney places "heart" as a pivotal point in the documentary, which is appropriate, as it is the first Whitney Houston documentary to be made with the permission of the Houston family estate.
Set to premiere at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival today, the new Kevin Macdonald documentary Whitney delves into the life of Whitney Houston, peaking into unseen corners through rare footage of the artist herself and through the lenses of those closest to her. According to its synopsis, the film promises to be "an intimate, unflinching portrait of Houston and her family that probes beyond familiar tabloid headlines and sheds new light on the spellbinding trajectory of Houston's life". Whitney also explores Houston's complicated relationship with her mother and highly publicized yoyo romance with Bobby Brown.
Bobby Brown and record industry titans Clive Davis and L.A. Reid also make appearances in the trailer further demonstrating how much access Macdonald received.
Drug addiction loomed large in Houston's life and contributed to her death, but in another gripping moment from the trailer, Reid denied he knew about the singer's struggle, despite working with her throughout the years.

The trailer shows the seven-time Grammy victor opening up about the ugly side of celebrity ("People think it's easy, but it's not") and trash-talking fellow singer Paula Abdul ("That girl is singing off-key on the record"). Another adds: "His heart was, he wanted to be on the stage". "And eventually, she (Houston) stepped down to lift him up". Reid makes a bold statement in the trailer saying he wasn't aware of Houston's drug use.
And, of course, Houston's own voice - specifically, her memorable 1991 performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at Super Bowl XXV - is showcased in the trailer.
