Netflix has just announced that the behind-the-scenes documentary about musician Lady Gaga will soon be launched internationally across the internet television network
The Hong Kong live music scene seems to be getting better and better. Along with long-term favourite Clockenflap, a number of smaller gigs are happening around town this month, and it’s great to be able to support local talent too. In case you can’t make it out to these events though, don’t worry, as Netflix has just announced the launch of Gaga: Five Foot Two, a documentary by Chris Moukarbel that takes you behind the scenes with the talented musician.
Netflix announces Gaga: Five Foot Two documentary launch
Watch out Lady Gaga fans (and possibly haters) as Netflix has just announced the simultaneous launch of Gaga: Five Foot Two across all countries on 22 September. The documentary by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Chris Moukarbel – the same storyteller that brought us Banksy Does New York – will make its international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival early in September before being rolled out on the internet television network.
What’s this Lady Gaga documentary all about?
Throughout the documentary, Moukarbel attempts to show the audience the woman behind the costumes; off-stage, in the studio, unplugged and at home. Viewers will have a chance to see the musician creating her fifth studio album, Joanne, as well as her struggles with her health, relationships and other day-to-day issues. There’s also talk that Gaga will address some of those beef-with-Madonna stories, but who knows how much she will delve into that.
“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,” said director Chris Moukarbel.
The Netflix original documentary is produced by Heather Parry for Live Nation Productions, Bobby Campbell for Mermaid Films, and Moukarbel, and is Executive Produced by Michael Rapino, Kim Ray, Lisa Nishimura, and Benjamin Cotner.
