Six years after the tragic death of Whitney Houston, Oscar-winning documentarian/filmmaker Kevin Macdonald (One Day in September, The Last King of Scotland) sets out to celebrate the Grammy-winning singer's life and career with an intimate and revealing portrait. And it's the first ever documentary to be authorized by the Whitney Houston Estate.

After given full access to Houston's archive of rarely-seen footage, personal home movies, family photos, and audio recordings, director Macdonald has assembled what appears to be a raw and honest look at the superstar's triumphs and struggles, from her humble beginnings to her meteoric rise in the entertainment industry.

The documentary, called "Whitney," promises to have "the questions you want asked" and "the answers you never knew," as it also digs into Houston's turbulent marriage to pop-singer Bobby Brown, as well as delves into Brown and Houston's history of drug abuse.

Featuring new and exclusive interviews with some of Houston's closest family members and also her closest associates in the music business, "Whitney" will be released in theaters on July 6th. Watch the newly-released full-length trailer, above.
