Framing Britney Spears re-examines the pop icon’s prolific career and offers a new assessment of the movement rallying against her court-mandated conservatorship, capturing the unsavoury dimensions of the American pop-star machine.

In the documentary, people close to Britney Spears and lawyers tied to her conservatorship reassess her career as she battles her father in court over who should control her life. The meteoric rise and disturbing fall of Spears has devolved into a Kafkaesque legal dispute that has reawakened her fandom and raised pressing questions about mental health and an individuals’ rights.
