"There were times when I'd look up to God and I'd go, 'Why is this happening to me?" she recalls in vintage footage.

"She's someone who has had such a big impact on culture but is not taken seriously". You can check it out the Miramax and Roadside Attractions in theaters (in North America) starting July 6.
