Netflix buys Kanye West documentary 21 years in the making

PanARMENIAN.Net - Netflix has bought a documentary series spanning two decades of Kanye West’s life, said to cover the death of his mother, Donda, in 2007 and his failed 2020 U.S. presidential bid, The Guardian reports.

The as-yet-untitled film will include previously unseen home videos of West and footage shot over a 21-year period by Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah, who directed West’s music videos Jesus Walks (Version 3) and Through the Wire.

Billboard reports that the series is set for release this year.

It is not known if details about West’s pending divorce reality TV star from Kim Kardashian West will be included in the documentary.

He married Kardashian in 2014. They have four children together. Kardashian asked for greater compassion for West as he experienced erratic public behaviour that she implied was triggered by his bipolar disorder.

West is the latest musician to join a boom in pop star documentaries, following Demi Lovato, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Tina Turner, Shawn Mendes and Blackpink.
