In the Netflix original documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two, Lady Gaga offers a vulnerable look at her life during one of the most pivotal periods in her career yet. Directed by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Chris Moukarbel (Banksy Does New York, Me at the Zoo), the film is shot in the style of cinema verité, giving viewers unfiltered, behind-the-scenes access as Gaga spends time with close friends and family members, records and releases her 2016 album Joanne, and deals with personal struggles. Moukarbel’s compelling portrait captures Lady Gaga’s life over an eight-month period. On top of professional triumphs, viewers see her cope with intense emotional and physical pain. Other moments reflect more ordinary aspects of her life, whether it’s attending a family christening, visiting her grandmother, or cooking and playing with her dogs at home. The film may help viewers understand how these experiences contribute to Gaga’s art – and how, in just a few years, the 5-foot-2 performer has become such a relatable and beloved figure worldwide. Join the GRAMMY Museum for a special free program featuring a screening of select clips from the film and a conversation with Director and Co-Producer Chris Moukarbel. The evening will be hosted by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman.
Director Spotlight: 'Gaga: Five Foot Two'
In conjunction with the recent release of their collaborative record Everybody Knows (Sept. 22), the GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome legendary singer/songwriters Stephen Stills and Judy Collins to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation on their new music and extraordinary careers.
After meeting 50 years ago, Stephen Stills and Judy Collins began a tumultuous love affair that would later be immortalized by Stills with his composition “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” performed by Crosby, Stills & Nash and named one of the 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time by Rolling Stone. Both artists would go gone to shape modern music with visionary approaches, but Stills and Collins’ short fiery union remains a transformative era for the two artists. On Sept. 22, the two folk icons celebrated the golden anniversary of their formative time together with the release of Everybody Knows, which features a trove of gems from the duo’s intertwined history, including Stills’ “Questions” and “So Begins The Task,” as well as Collins’ “Houses” and “Who Knows Where The Time Goes.” The album also features the single “Judy,” which was written by Stills as a tribute to Collins while working on her 1968 album Who Knows Where The Time Goes? – and work by Bob Dylan and the Traveling Wilburys. Stills and Collins are currently in the midst of a join U.S. tour, marking the first time the two have ever joined each other onstage.
