This sweeping documentary portrait of the late, great Sidney Poitier, one of the most gifted and charismatic actors to grace the silver screen, surveys his films, life story, and litany of accomplishments as an artist and activist who forever changed what it meant to be Black in America. From producer Oprah Winfrey and director Reginald Hudlin, working in close collaboration with the Poitier family, this revealing documentary honours the legendary actor and positions him as a central figure in the civil rights movement, foregrounding his tumultuous, life-long friendship with fellow-activist Harry Belafonte. Featuring candid interviews with Denzel Washington, Halle Berry, Robert Redford, Lenny Kravitz, Barbara Streisand, Spike Lee, and many more, Sidney is a powerful testament to the man and his legacy.
