In the compelling 20 Feet from Stardom (2013), award-winning documentary director Morgan Neville shines a spotlight on the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. To celebrate the home entertainment DVD and Blu-ray release of Neville’s Academy Award-winning latest this coming Monday (21 July), we have THREE brand new DVD copies of 20 Feet from Stardom to give away to our regular and returning readers, kindly provided to us by our friends at the film’s UK distributors Altitude Films. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, the film is both a tribute to the unsung voices who brought shape and style to popular music and a reflection on the conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent harmonizing with others. These gifted artists span a range of styles, genres and eras of popular music, but each has a uniquely fascinating and personal story to share of life spent in the shadows of superstardom. Along with rare archival footage and a peerless soundtrack, 20 Feet from Stardom boasts intimate interviews with Mick Jagger, Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Wonder to name but a few. However, these world-famous figures take a backseat to the diverse array of backup singers whose lives and stories take centre stage in the film.
