An aspiring songwriter from a small steel town, Betty Mabry Davis arrived on the scene to break boundaries for women with her daring personality, iconic fashion style and outrageous funk. She married Miles Davis, turning him from jazz to funk and then went on to ignite stages in the 70s with her own sassy, sexed up sounds. Then she was gone.

Now living quietly in the same place she spent her childhood, the film explores the life of an artist ahead of her time, her incredible influence on music and fashion, and why, for three decades, she chose to vanish from the limelight.

Following the film there will be a special 30 minute extra featuring a discussion about Betty’s relevance and legacy led by director Phil Cox, Guardian/Quietus music culture journalist Tara Joshi and other very special guests.
