Tonight, Franco-German channel Arte is once again honoring Tina with a new documentary and the broadcast of Tina live in Arnhem 2009. The program is available since this morning on Arte’s website and should be online very soon on their Youtube channel. I’ll update this article tomorrow with the link to the Youtube video as soon as it is available.
Starting in Paris in Peter Lindbergh’s studio, the documentary spans Tina’s career with rare footage and interviews of Dominik Wichmann, Peter Lindbergh, and Kristina Love. No new interview with Tina herself however but extract from her last BBC interview and footage from the past.
The documentary is full of anecdotes of all kinds: From the people who marvel at her flamboyant hair to the fact that she climbed the Eiffel Tower in high heels with no protection to her notorious wedding night with Ike.
Although there’s nothing much new to learn for the fans, the focus was more put into Tina’s solo work and the job done with the archives has to be saluted. Director Schyda Vasseghi and her team really made an effort to show rare great quality footage which makes the whole documentary worth watching.
It is not the first time that Arte puts Tina at honor. Back in 2013, the Queen of Rock already graced the cover of the channel magazine and was also the subject of a documentary.
