More Info:

From the 1920s onwards, Florence Foster Jenkins's public performances were events that drew huge crowds who were treated to singing that was so awful it became compelling. Her 1944 sold-out Carnegie Hall recital remains one of the legendary nights of that great house. The Florence Foster Jenkins Story examines the enigma and the woman behind this aural assault on the public. The documentary features renowned experts in the field and also New Yorkers who remember seeing Jenkins perform. The Florence Foster Jenkins Story also presents archival discoveries, previously unpublished photos, as well as original audio recordings. These findings gradually expose the scandal and mystery that dogged her life. With it's entertaining pacing and glamorous visual language, punctuated with irreverent digs at the hypocrisy of the establishment, this film immerses viewers into Florence Foster Jenkins's bizarre world and tells the affecting story of this rebel, eccentric, and unwitting icon of camp.
