In a March 2021 interview with Today, Tina Turner described the film as a parallel story to her memoir Happiness Becomes You, which was released in December 2020 by Atria Books
With a wealth of never-before-seen footage, audio tapes, personal photos, and new interviews, including with the singer herself, TINA presents an unvarnished and dynamic account of the life and career of music icon Tina Turner.
Everything changed when Tina began telling her story, a story of trauma and survival, that gave way to a rebirth as the record-breaking queen of rock ‘n’ roll. But behind closed doors, the singer struggled with the survivor narrative that meant her past was never fully behind her. Directed by Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin, the documentary charts Tina Turner’s early fame, the private and public personal and professional struggles, and her return to the world stage as a global phenomenon in the 1980s.
The film spans Turner’s life from early fame to her private and public personal and professional struggles to her return to the world stage as the record-breaking queen of Rock ’n’ Roll in the 1980s. TINA will also delve into how Turner struggled with her narrative of surviving trauma because it prevented her from fully putting her past behind her.
Erwin Bach, the husband she married in 2013, sees the musical and documentary as the closure she’s been chasing all these years.
But with that closure came the need to tell that story one more time, which she did in a series of interviews filmed in her chateau in Zurich, Switzerland, in 2019, the same year she turned 80.
TOTAL RUNNING TIME: 2 Hours
