LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Live Nation announced that they are partnering with streaming video service Netflix to release Gaga: Five Foot Two, a documentary offering an inside look at a year in the life of the iconic performer.
The documentary was selected to premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival and will launch simultaneously in all 190 countries in which Netflix is available on September 22.
In the film, Emmy-nominated filmmaker Chris Moukarbel (Banksy Does New York) follows Gaga behind the curtain, offering an unvarnished look at her life off-stage and out from under the meat dresses.
“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.”
“Live Nation Productions is used to telling artists’ stories in new and intimate ways that bridge the gap between musician and fan. The extraordinary personal access Lady Gaga gave us on Gaga: Five Foot Twoallows everyone to experience her fearlessness, vulnerability and true devotion to her craft,” added Heather Parry, Live Nation Productions’ President of Production, Film & Television.
