Written/Directed: Michelle Parkerson                Country: USA          Time:  53 minutes

There is only one jazz singer, only one:  Betty Carter – Carmen McCrae

But Then, She’s Betty Carter is an unforgettable portrait of legendary vocalist Betty Carter, one of the greatest living exponents of jazz. Uncompromised by commercialism throughout her long career, she has forged alternative criteria for success — including founding her own recording company and raising her two sons as a single parent. Michelle Parkerson’s film captures Carter’s musical genius, her paradoxical relationship with the public and her fierce dedication to personal and artistic independence.  (Courtesy of Women Make Movies).
