Miss Americana, a new documentary about Taylor Swift, will premiere at Sundance 2020, as EW notes. Directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Lana Wilson (After Tiller, The Departure), the film is described as a “raw and emotionally revealing look at one of the most iconic artists of our time 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.” It’s set to show on the first day of the festival, January 23.

In a statement last month, Swift alluded to an upcoming documentary about her career, claiming that her ex-label boss Scott Borchetta and music manager Scooter Braun were blocking the use of her back catalog in the film. According to Variety, a source has confirmed her music has been cleared to use in the documentary.
