Last year, Keisha re-emerged like a Phoenix and released a powerful album titled Rainbow that chronicles her struggles during the darkest period of her life when a judge dismissed her lawsuit which stated that Dr. Luke, her former producer, sexually, physically, and verbally abused her.
Now, Kesha is ready to tell her story on film.
Kesha claims making the album was a life-saving journey. “Sometimes things feel like they’re too much to handle,” she says in a clip promoting the film. “You may be able to pull it together and put on a front in front of others. But inside you’re trapped, suffocating slowly.”
“MakingRainbow the album was such a therapeutic process and given the opportunity to turn it into a three-dimensional piece of art has helped me find even deeper healing and catharsis,” she added.
In a press statement, the artist said she hopes that the documentary will serve as an inspiration to others.
"Making Rainbow the album was such a therapeutic process and given the opportunity to turn it into a three-dimensional piece of art has helped me find even deeper healing and catharsis," she said. "I hope this film inspires others to never give up even if you feel full of hurt or lost, because after the storm comes a rainbow. Depression, anxiety and mental illness are things we all need to talk about more, and there is no shame in asking for help. Making the decision to work on yourself is the bravest thing you can do. I hope this film helps bring light and love to everyone."
The film details Rainbow recording sessions as well as previously unseen footage of Kesha’s live shows at rock festivals and dive bars around the U.S, her performance at the 2018 Grammy Awards and some psychedelic vignettes that depict her mental journey toward recovery.
Rainbow – The Film can be streamed exclusively on Apple Music starting August 10th.
