Beyoncés music and visuals have always made a statement. The documentary “Life is but a dream” from 2013 - all curated by the Queen herself- gave us a small insight to Beys impressive journey - both musically and personally. The release of her visual album Lemonade in 2016, dropped like a bomb and changed everything we knew about an album release. Bringing us to today, and the news of the upcoming documentary - Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé.
The film will provide an intimate look at the singer’s historic set at Coachella last year. The April 2018 performance—which made Beyoncé the first Black woman to headline Coachella—was framed as though it were taking place at a homecoming ceremony, and paid homage to America's historically black colleges and universities.
In the trailer, with behind-the-scenes footage she performs alongside a voiceover from Maya Angelou.
“I want to be representative of my race-the human race, I have a chance to show how kind we can be, how intelligent and generous we can be. I have a chance to teach and to love and to laugh. I know that when I finish doing what I'm sent here to do, I will be called home and I will go home without any fear, trepidations, wondering what's going to happen.”
It’s fair to say that Homecoming is going to be a powerful movie watched around the world. The film will be two hours and 17 minutes long, and the concert footage will be mixed with interviews and backstage footage. Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé launches on Netflix April 17, and we will definitely be watching.
