I Am: Céline Dion, Amazon Shows the Behind-the-Scenes of Her Battle Against Illness

Céline Dion, the brave Canadian singer and undisputed global star, is going through very difficult times

Céline Dion, a global music icon, is the subject of an exceptional documentary, I Am: Céline Dion, acquired by Amazon MGM Studios for exclusive broadcast on Prime Video. Directed by Irene Taylor, a renowned filmmaker, this film offers a rare and deep insight into the singer’s life, including her battle against Stiff Person Syndrome.

In this documentary described as an "intimate exploration", viewers will be invited to dive into Céline Dion’s daily life, from her tour wardrobe to her recording studio. The film promises to reveal unknown aspects of the megastar’s life.

Last year, Céline Dion overcame her illness to star in the romantic comedy Love Again: a little, a lot, passionately, marking her film debut alongside Priyanka Chopra and Sam Heughan.

Stiff Person Syndrome, a rare and debilitating disease, has had a significant impact on the singer’s life and career. As a result, she had to cancel several dates of her world tour Courage. The singer has expressed her desire to raise public awareness of this little-known disease and to help those who suffer from it.

Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon MGM Studios, promises with this film a sincere and moving portrait of the singer, who continues to fight against this disease while maintaining her love for music and her fans. The release date of the documentary I Am: Céline Dion on Prime Video is yet to be announced.
