Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil

Demi Lovato's Dancing with the Devil

"Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil" is a powerful YouTube Originals documentary event, exploring every aspect that led to Lovato’s nearly fatal overdose in 2018, and her awakenings in the aftermath. Director Michael D. Ratner is granted unprecedented access to the superstar’s personal and musical journey during the most trying time of her life as she unearths her prior traumas and discovers the importance of her physical, emotional, and mental health. Far deeper than an inside look beyond the celebrity surface, the film is an intimate portrait of addiction, and the process of healing and empowerment.
