Homecoming, the Netflix documentary cataloguing the creation and performance of Beyoncé‘s landmark Coachella 2018 set, has a brand new trailer. Honestly, that’s all we really need to write. You already know you’re set for an in-depth look at an unprecedented artistic spectacle.
If you’re still keen to read more about the flick before its April 17 premiere, here goes: Homecoming promises to show how the multiple elements of that storied performance came together, in addition to primo HD footage of the show itself.
The trailer features an audio snippet of the great poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou, presaging the performance’s celebration of black excellence.
“What I really wanted to do was be a representative of my race, of the human race,” Angelou says.
“I have a chance to show how kind we can be, how intelligent and generous we can be. I have a chance to teach and to love and to laugh.”
The trailer comes after a decidedly cryptic tweet, which had many punters wondering if the streaming platform would eventually host her performance. The answer, of course is yes – and so much more.
