Betty Davis' "Nasty Gal" to be reissued on vinyl for the first time

In addition, a new documentary on the life of Dais recently premiered at International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) in the Netherlands. Titled Betty – They Say I’m Different, and directed by Phil Cox, the film is described as a “creative documentary,” and “a creative and cinematic interpretation” of Davis’ life, which “reveals for the first time the extraordinary unknown story of the elusive Betty, from the young girl growing up on a North Carolina farm, to the legendary funk pioneer and wife of Miles Davis to the startling mystery of Betty’s 30 year disappearance.”

Watch the trailer for Betty – They Say I’m Different below:
