---------------- ABOUT BETTY DAVIS ----------------------

An aspiring songwriter from Pittsburgh, Betty Mabry Davis arrived on the scene to break boundaries for women with her daring personality, iconic fashion style and outrageous funk. She befriended Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone, wrote songs for the Chambers Brothers and The Commodores. She married Miles Davis - turning him from jazz to funk and then went on to ignite stages in the 70s with her sassy sexed up mix of hard rock and bluesy funk, inspiring artists from Prince to Erykah Badu. Here band went on to have amazing careers of their own, including Herbie Hancock, Chuck Rainey, and Alphonse Mouzon.

Now living quietly in Pittsburgh, Betty, for reasons that this film will reveal for the first time, chose to vanish from the limelight for three decades, cutting herself off from everyone in her past. As the film unveils Betty’s past and how she rose above it - all rendered with a sensitivity that honors our subject.
