Celine Dion Documentary to Stream on Amazon Prime: ‘Love Letter to Her Fans’

By Movieguide® Contributor

In a recent announcement, multi-time Grammy Award winner Celine Dion revealed that a documentary about her life and journey with Stiff Person Syndrome will release this summer.

Per her website, “Amazon MGM Studios announced today that it has acquired worldwide rights to the feature-length Celine Dion documentary, I AM: CELINE DION.”

“This intimate exploration takes viewers on a journey inside Celine’s past and present as she reveals her battle with Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS) and the lengths she has gone to continue performing for her beloved and loyal fans,” the press release continued. “From visiting her couture touring wardrobe and personal effects to spending time in the recording studio, the documentary captures a global megastar’s never-before-seen private life. An emotional, energetic, and poetic love letter to music, I AM: CELINE DION captures more than a year of filming as the legendary singer navigates her journey toward living an open and authentic life amidst illness.”

Dion and Amazon Prime shared the news via Instagram: “Directed by Academy Award nominee Irene Taylor, I AM: CELINE DION gives us a raw and honest behind-the-scenes look at the iconic superstar’s struggle with a life-altering illness. Serving as a love letter to her fans, this inspirational documentary highlights the music that has guided her life while also showcasing the resilience of the human spirit.”

The singer revealed why she decided to share her story through the documentary.

“This last couple of years has been such a challenge for me, the journey from discovering my condition to learning how to live with and manage it, but not to let it define me,” she explained. “As the road to resuming my performing career continues, I have realized how much I have missed it, of being able to see my fans. During this absence, I decided I wanted to document this part of my life, to try to raise awareness of this little-known condition, to help others who share this diagnosis.”

I AM: CELINE DION will release on Amazon Prime on June 25.

Movieguide® previously reported:

Dion shared her diagnosis of SPS in December 2022, lamenting the cancelation of her world tour due to the disease’s impact on her ability to sing and function. Though she has since worked tirelessly to overcome SPS, there is little understanding of how the disease works and how to treat it, leaving her still unable to return to the stage.

“She works so hard, but she doesn’t have control of her muscles,” Dion’s sister, Claudette, told 7Jours last December. “What pains me is that she has always been disciplined. She always worked hard. Mom always told her, ‘You’re going to do this right.”

“It’s certain that, in our dreams and in hers, the idea is to return to the stage,” Claudette continued. “In which state? I do not know. The vocal cords are muscles, and the heart is a muscle. This is what comes to get me.”

Dion hopes that I AM: CELINE DION will “raise awareness of this little-known condition.”
