Beyonce’s performance at Coachella 2018 was nothing short of remarkable and it is the basis for a new documentary by Netflix. The documentary titled “Homecoming: A film by Beyonce” is billed to premiere later this month, precisely April 17.
As described by the site, the documentary, which brings the viewer closer to Beyonce’s 2018 Coachella performance, shows the emotional journey from creativity to cultural movement. The official announcement reads, “Homecoming’ presents an intimate look at Beyoncé’s historic 2018 Coachella performance that paid homage to America’s historically black colleges and universities. Interspersed with candid footage and interviews detailing the preparation and powerful intent behind her vision, Homecoming traces the emotional road from creative concept to cultural movement.”
In reaction to the news, a fan on Twitter had this to say, “Beyhive, get your coins together. If a documentary is coming, then an album is soon coming, and then a tour will come. You know, by now, how the Queen rolls out projects.”
Part of Variety’s review of the show reads, “Part of the brilliance of Saturday’s set was that it was more of a half-time show than her half-time show, in that she took the marching band that has been persona non grata at the Bowl for years and built a 105-minute performance around over packed horn charts, glorified drum majorettes, and nonstop drumline insanity. Who would’ve guessed the missing ingredients needed to ratchet her catalog a step up into greatness were exceptionally arranged tubas and timbales? It was an over-the-top Busby Berkeley Hollywood musical brought to the modern day by way of the great HBCU marching units of the South, and it was fairly glorious.”
