CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Rolling Stone reports:

A new Donna Summer documentary, co-directed by the disco icon’s daughter, Brooklyn Sudano, will premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival this month before arriving on HBO in May. Sudano co-directed Love to Love You, Donna Summer, with Oscar-winning filmmaker Roger Ross Williams.

The film will chronicle Summer’s unique career — from a star of the avant-garde art, music, and theater scene in Germany to an era-defining global superstar — while also digging into her personal life, her music-making process, and other artistic endeavors like painting. Summer died in 2012, at the age of 63, after a battle with cancer.

Love to Love You will include a trove of archival footage, including photos and never-before-seen home videos, a lot of which were shot by Summer. The film will also feature reflections and memories from Summer’s family, friends, and peers.
