The documentary approved by here estate will be directed by Kevin Macdonald will cover Whitney in various stages of her life, as well as studio recordings and acapellas of some of her greatest hits.

Macdonald said in a statement:

I approached Whitney’s life like a mystery story; why did someone with so much raw talent and beauty self-destruct so publicly and painfully?  I was lucky enough to have the support of Pat Houston and the Whitney Houston estate in this quest. They entrusted me with the ‘keys to the vault’ while giving me complete freedom to follow the story wherever it went. At heart, ‘Whitney’ is an intimate family story that reveals a new side to a woman that even her most die-hard fans never knew.

“Whitney” will be released on July 6th.
