Our opinion of the premise

Sidney Poitier is one of the most revolutionary and storied figures that overcame so much to become the man, the person, the activist he was. I can’t wait to hear the story of what he faced, what he stood for, and how he propelled a generation of people across the globe.

Is there a trailer?

There sure is! Check it out below:

One of the more essential things that you see in the trailer is hearing some of the words from his own mouth. I love the idea of having a loaded list of guests to talk about the documentary principal, but it’s equally important to hear some things from that person. However, the list of people talking within the trailer and will throughout the doc is enormous. You factor in the iconic figure that Sidney is mixed with these people reliving him. We are in for a treat.
