A Search for Self-Love
Oscar-winning filmmaker Vanessa Roth follows nine-time Grammy winner and two-time Oscar nominee Mary J. Blige as she celebrates the 25th anniversary of her transformative 1994 My Life LP with her first-ever live performance of the entire album. Roth traces the painful, exhilarating and ultimately healing journey that changed a lost teenager growing up in a world that told her she was of no consequence into a musical superstar, world-renowned actress and icon of hope for women around the globe.
“For a long time, I didn’t know I was successful because I was a wreck inside.”Mary J. Blige
The film’s strength, according to Blige, lies is Roth’s willingness to allow the action to unfold naturally. “Vanessa let the moments play out,” she says. “She stayed out of the way when it came to people expressing themselves about the journey. This story was ready to be a movie and people had so much to say. She just stepped back and recorded it all.”
