Celine Dion will be the subject of a new documentary film.
Sony Music Entertainment’s Premium Content division, in partnership with SME Canada and Vermilion Films, has announced the feature film project which will focus on the highs and lows of Celine’s phenomenal 40-year career which has seen her win five Grammys and an Oscar for ‘The Titanic Theme “My Heart Will Go On” – which was named Best Original Song at the 1998 Oscars – and has sold more than 250 million records worldwide.
The film is directed by Irene Taylor Brodsky, whose previous work includes the documentary films “Hear and Now” and “The Final Inch.”
In a statement, Celine said: “I have always been an open book with my fans and with sensitivity and thoughtful creativity, I believe Irene will be able to show everyone a part of me they have never seen before… I know she will tell my story in the most honest and sincere way.
Sony’s documentary isn’t the only film about the 53-year-old singer’s life and career to come.
“Aline”, a fictional biopic based on Celine’s life, has been acquired by Roadside Attractions and Samuel Goldwyn Films in the United States and will hit theaters in early 2022.
‘Aline’ – which debuted at the Cannes Film Festival – is directed by and stars Valérie Lemercier as Aline Dieu, who is inspired by Celine.
