Los Angeles , Apr 28:
A top-secret documentary feature about former first lady Michelle Obama is set to start streaming worldwide on Netflix from May 6.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the doc shares its title with Michelle Obama’s best-selling 2018 memoir “Becoming” and recounts some of the same history of her life.
“Becoming”, like the best documentary feature Oscar winner “American Factory”, comes from Higher Ground, the production company run by former President Barack Obama and the former first lady, which has an exclusive pact with the streamer.
The documentary marks the feature directorial debut of cinematographer Nadia Hallgren known for her work on “Trouble the Water”, the 2008 indie about a couple surviving failed levees, bungling bureaucrats, and their own troubled past and a portrait of a community abandoned long before Hurricane Katrina hit.
“Becoming” also picks up where that story left off by following her on the 34-city tour that she undertook while promoting her book.
