A new documentary centred on Taylor Swift is set to premiere at next year’s Sundance film festival. The film, premiering on the festival’s opening night, is titled Taylor Swift: Miss Americana, and is described by Entertainment Weekly as a “raw and emotionally revealing look” at Swift’s career. Directed by Lana Wilson and produced by Morgan Neville, Caitrin Rogers and Christine O’Malley, the film is set “during a transformational period in her life as she learns to embrace her role not only as a songwriter and performer, but as a woman harnessing the full power of her voice.”
