Late stars Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher will be remembered in an upcoming documentary.
The famous mother-daughter-pair, who both died this week, will appear in the HBO doc “Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds.” It first debuted at Cannes in May and will air on the network in early 2017.
“It’s a love story,” HBO Documentary Films president Sheila Nevins told Variety. “Carrie wanted to make Bright Lights for Debbie and Debbie wanted to make it for Carrie.”
“Bright Lights” chronicles the pair’s tumultuous and intensely close mother-daughter relationship over the course of six decades.
In the film, Fisher is very candid about her battle with mental illness and the duo’s ups and downs are notably depicted, according to Variety.
“These women were more than mother and daughter, they were an expression of exquisite humanity in all its travail and triumph,” directors Fisher Stevens and Alexis Bloom explained.
A majority of the footage was shot about a year ago, Variety reported.
Carrie Fisher died on Tuesday at 60 just days after suffering a heart attack on an airplane.
Her mother Reynolds, 84, died the following day after suffering a possible stroke although some say it is likely from a broken heart.
