Trailer: The Lady Gaga Netflix documentary that she hasn’t seen
James R | On 20, Sep 2017
From Walmart shopping trips to doctors visits to rocking the Super Bowl Halftime Show, Netflix is about to show you Lady Gaga as you’ve never seen her.
Directed by Chris Moukarbel, Gaga: Five Foot Two follows the superstar at her most vulnerable moments as she pushes through chronic pain, heartbreak and produces a soul-blooming album.
The revealing documentary premieres this weekend, although even the singer herself says she hasn’t seen it.
“This film is not my vision, it’s Chris’s vision,” she told the press at the Toronto International Film Festival, where the movie premiered. “I’m just party to it because it’s my life.”
She was a “reluctant participant” at first, added the director.
“It’s a difficult thing to let somebody into your life, and I think it happened slowly and organically, and there were points where she could’ve pulled the plug on it, but she allowed it to happen and then we had a finished film.”
You watch that finished film on Friday 22nd September – presumably around the same time that Lady Gaga watches it too. Here’s the trailer:

Lady Gaga is coming to Netflix.
The pop superstar will give us a glimpse into a year of her life in Gaga: Five Foot Two. The documentary, which is directed by Chris Mourkabel, is intended to be an unguarded portrait of the singer, taking us through the highs and lows of an emotional time in her skyrocketing career.
The film is the latest in a string of music and celebrity documentaries produced or acquired by Netflix, from What Happened Miss Simone to The Long Strange Trip of Bob Weir, as well as YouTuber profile Chasing Cameron. Lady Gaga, though, may be its highest profile subject yet.
“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, in a statement. “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.”
Gaga: Five Foot Two is produced by Heather Parry for Live Nation Productions, Bobby Campbell for Mermaid Films, and Moukarbel. It is exec-produced by Michael Rapino, Kim Ray, Lisa Nishimura, and Benjamin Cotner.
Like most of the streaming giant’s documentaries, Gaga: Five Foot Two will screen on the festival circuit, with a premiere set for Toronto International Film Festival before it releases worldwide on 22nd September. For more on what’s coming soon to Netflix UK in September, click here.
