Still Bill

Directed by: Damani Baker and Alex Vlack

Just the Two of Us. Ain't No Sunshine. Lean on Me. The man who wrote the songs that defined a decade walked away from showbiz without a look back. For 23 years, Bill Withers shunned the spotlight and refused all interviews - until filmmakers Damani Baker and Alex Vlack convinced him to tell his surprising story. Still Bill gives us an inside look at Bill Wither's life and personality, tells why he stopped performing at the peak of his career and who he is today. An amazing portrait of an icon who never gave up his soul.

Through interviews with Dr. Cornel West, Sting, Angelique Kidjo, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Withers’ family and his oldest friends, and through countless hours of Withers living a full and contemplative life, the film presents a man who in his seventieth year continues to bring a rich understanding of the heart and soul of a man.

***STILL BILL just won BEST DOCUMENTARY and the AUDIENCE AWARD at Urbanworld Film Festival in NY***
