HOMECOMING: A FILM BY BEYONCÉ
In 2018, Beyoncé became the first black woman to headline Coachella, dating back to the music festival's debut in 1999. After spending eight months preparing, she delivered the pop spectacle of a lifetime, crafting an epic two-hour visual and aural feast which incorporated more than 200 backing musicians and dancers, brought the iconography and traditions of historically black colleges and universities to the world and enshrined the term "Beychella" into the pop music lexicon. Luckily for anyone who missed this generation-defining moment – and for members of the Beyhive wishing to relive its glory – Beyoncé also found time to direct HOMECOMING, an intimate look at the landmark Coachella performance from concept to realization, which recently nabbed the International Documentary Association's 2019 Award for Best Music Documentary. Featuring both behind-the-scenes excerpts and extended concert footage, which demands to be seen (and heard) on the big screen, HOMECOMING confirms Beyoncé as an artist at the height of her powers. "If HOMECOMING doesn't convince you of Beyoncé's greatness, nothing will […] you're in for one of the greatest concert films ever made," wrote Chris Richards in The Washington Post. DIR/SCR Beyoncé Knowles-Carter; DIR Ed Burke; PROD Steve Pamon, Erinn Williams. U.S., 2019, color/b&w, 137 min. NOT RATED
