13. What Happened, Miss Simone?
Premieres On: Thursday, January 22
Director: Liz Garbus
Featuring: Nina Simone
Why it could pop: A Sundance regular -- See "The Farm: Angola, USA" and "Bobby Fischer Against the World" -- Garbus landed an Opening Night slot for this look at legendary vocalist, musician and political activist Nina Simone. Simone is a fascinating marvel and with Netflix already on-board as a distributor, this is one doc guaranteed to have the widest possible availability. - Daniel Fienberg
