Celine Dion’s Documentary Arrives At Amazon MGM

Amazon MGM has purchased a documentary on Celine Dion.

The movie, “I Am: Celine Dion,” will at some point be accessible for streaming on Prime Video. It’s a glimpse of a critical juncture in the pop singer’s career rather than an exhaustive look into her life and times.

Dion’s struggle with Stiff Person Syndrome, a rare neurological condition that affects the brain and spinal cord, is chronicled in this one-year documentary. Dion’s condition prevented her from performing and from earning a living.

Dion didn’t formally reveal her diagnosis until December 2022, when she declared she was delaying her global tour because of spasms that affected the way she walks and sings. As one of the most popular performers in pop music history, Dion rose to fame in her teens and has since sold over 250 million albums.

Irene Taylor directed “I Am: Celine Dion.” Her credits include the Sundance Prize-winning film “Hear and Now,” the HBO series “Trees and Other Entanglements,” and the Hulu series “Leave No Trace: A Hidden History of the Boy Scouts.”

Together with Vermilion Films and Sony Music Entertainment Canada, Sony Music Vision produced the documentary. Along with Stacy Lorts, Julie Begey Seureau for Vermilion Films, and Tom Mackay for Sony Music Vision, Taylor also produced “I Am: Celine Dion.”
