What makes a documentary film appealing to you?

For me, it’s either a subject in which I’m already invested, of course, or one in which I’m just curious enough to give it a try.

Well, I didn’t know much about Anita O’Day, the jazz singer whom Robbie Cavolina and Ian McCrudden have immortalized in their new film, Anita O’Day: The Life of a Jazz Singer. It would have been just as easy to take a pass on this, but I’m glad I didn’t.

O’Day, whose voice could be both lilting and rusty – and I mean that in a good way – was gifted with a phenomenal instrument. And she lived a crazy life, falling into serious heroin abuse for nearly 15 years. Hers is a story natural to documentary filmmaking and I encourage you to check it out.
