Netflix announced the release of their new original documentary entitled Gaga: Five Foot Two, an intimate and unfettered portrait of a year in the life of Lady Gaga.
The documentary will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival 2017 and will launch simultaneously in all 190 countries in which Netflix is available on September 22.
Directed by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Chris Moukarbel (Banksy Does New York) introduces the woman behind the performer, the costumes, the glitz and the glamour.
“It is a rare moment when one is invited behind the curtain to witness the raw truth of an individual, even more so when that person happens to be one of the most recognizable, influential and scrutinized public figures in culture today,” said Lisa Nishimura, VP of Original Documentaries for Netflix. “Director Chris Moukarbel deftly brings us into Lady Gaga’s intimate world; allowing us to experience the drive, conflict, passion, complexity and deeply personal creative process behind this singular artist.”
The Netflix original documentary is directed by Chris Moukarbel and produced by Heather Parry for Live Nation Productions, Bobby Campbell for Mermaid Films, and Moukarbel. Gaga: Five Foot Two premieres globally on Netflix on September 22, Friday.
