|Filmaker, Jeff Lieberman|
Now Jeff is working on a new project, a documentary about the life of singer Nina Simone. Nina Simone took to the piano to demand racial and gender equality over 50 years ago - a cry for freedom equally resonant today. I've watched an early draft of the film and I was spellbound with the power of Nina's singing and her lyrics. And her own life, from classical piano student in rural North Carolina, to jazz and style icon in the US and Europe, is a fascinating story.
Jeff has financed the film entirely on his own so far, but he needs funds to pay for the rights to the music, videos and pictures, funds that will ultimately go back to the artist who created them. He has a campaign on Kickstarter than you can check out and maybe you'll be inspired enough to donate. Click here for the link to Jeff's Kickstarter campaign.
