We’re delighted to welcome Nick Broomfield back to Curzon Soho for a Q&A and preview screening of his latest film Whitney Can I Be Me, with a post screening Q&A chaired by Be Manzini of The British Blacklist.

Monday 12th June, 6.20pm at the Curzon Cinema Soho.

Whitney Houston’s voice guaranteed her stardom. What she was unprepared for was the cost of fame. Nick Broomfield’s (Kurt and Courtney 1998, Biggie and Tupac 2002) documentary is a tribute to Houston’s talent and an ultimately sad tale of the singer’s rise to the top and inexorable descent from it.

Featuring interviews with family and friends, it’s a moving, emotionally resonant portrait.


For your chance to win one of TWO pairs of tickets answer the following question:

Whitney Houston’s father gave her a nickname, what was it?

A – Nettie
B – Niecey
C – Nippy

Email your answer along with your full name, and contact number to: info@thebritishblacklist.com
