Kanye West has been all of over the news lately. After playing some of his all-time greatest hits over the weekend at the Free Larry Hoover concert with Drake, Ye is now all set to hit the big screen again soon.
“Jean-yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy,” Netflix’s intimate portrait of the life and career of Kanye West is one among the highlights of the 2022 Sundance Film Festival. As announced earlier this year, the festival will return to its home, Park City, Utah, with in-person screenings following last year’s virtual edition. The festival will also continue to provide online screenings.
West’s three-part documentary series, “Jeen-Yuhs,” is directed by Coodie and Chike. It is described on the Sundance website as a monumental production: “Kanye West in three acts. The story beyond the iconic music, an intimate and empathetic chronicle featuring never-before-seen footage from 21 years in the life of a captivating figure.” It is said to be 270 minutes long and is focused on telling the story of Kanye’s beginning in music, using exclusive footage, and showing Ye’s growth musically and business-wise over his entire career.
The Sundance will take place from January 20 to January 30, 2022. It has always been one of the most prestigious events for judging films and presenting upcoming projects. So, “Jeen-Yuhs” being shown for such an audience likely means it will be a super hit.
The series will then be made available on Netflix after its premiere, but there is no fixed time as to when it is going to hit the streaming platforms. Watch the trailer, released by Netflix where a young Kanye West is witnessed freestyling his heart out with fellow legend Mos Def, below.
