If you ever doubted the connection between genius and suffering, Nina Simone should be enough to change your mind.

The clip is far better than the documentary, which was always going to suffer from having to distil an epic life into less than two hours. There was too much to choose from and it could have concentrated on so many different facets of her life that some fans were always going to be left unfulfilled.

From her childhood to her incredible success, to her awful relationships, her likely undiagnosed mental illness(es) and her breakdown after the assassination of Martin Luther King, to her escape to Africa, her exile in Paris and Switzerland, her cafe period, her … you get the idea. She lived a lot. And was pained even more.

And yet, there is still Nine Simone. And that alone makes this well worth watching.
