Beyonce “Life Is But A Dream” Full Documentary Stream
Beyonce and HBO have teamed up for an intimate look into the singer’s life.
Beyoncé and HBO announced plans for the singer to star in and direct a documentary about her life entitled Life Is But A Dream, which debuted on the cable network February 16, 2013.
According to a post on her Facebook page, the film is a “fusion of video that provides raw, unprecedented access to the private entertainment icon and high-voltage performances.” It includes first-person footage, some of which was shot by Beyoncé on her laptop, where she “reflects on the realities of celebrity, the refuge she finds onstage and the transcendent joy of becoming a mother”.
The film sheds light on her childhood in Houston, with home movies revealing the close bond she built with her family and charts the challenges Beyoncé felt when she decided to manage her career and build her own company, Parkwood Entertainment. The film also captures the intense physical and emotional demands she goes through in the studio, preparing for live performances, running a business and her family life including her return to the spotlight after the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, in January 2012.
“Everybody knows Beyoncé’s music, but few know Beyoncé the person,” said Michael Lombardo, president of HBO Programming. “Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman”.
