Netflix has set an official release date for Lady Gaga’s upcoming documentary, Five Foot Two. The documentary will arrive on Netflix on September 22, but not without having an early premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival from September 9 to 17.
Chris Moukarble, the director of the documentary, wanted to show a more vulnerable side of Gaga through the highs and lows of her personal journey this past year. In a report by Rolling Stone, he said:
“I had a rare opportunity to create a portrait of an artist with such an open heart and mind. I feel really lucky that Gaga trusted me and my vision.”
Gaga has teased the documentary through several clips that she posted on her Instagram page. In many of these different clips, Gaga can be seen preparing for a medical procedure, going to the top of the NRG stadium for her Super Bowl halftime performance, and her own personal and emotional issues.
In one of the clips, Mother Monster lets out a few deep thoughts that plague her every night. She says:
“I’m alone, every night, and all these people will leave. They will leave and I’ll be home alone. I go from everyone touching me all day, and talking at me all day, to total silence.”
Lisa Nishimura, the vice president of documentaries for Netflix is looking forward to sharing this whole other side of Gaga to the world. She praised Moukarbel for being able to really delve into the world of Gaga and bring out the ups and downs she faces.
“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.”
Little Monsters and Netflix junkies will most definitely not want to miss this upcoming entry into the Netflix’s ever-growing library. Be sure to check in September 22 to get a glimpse into the world of Gaga.
