Oscar-nominated director Ava DuVernay says she is "honored" to be making a Prince documentary for Netflix.
The project is being done with the full cooperation of the Prince estate, which has granted the producers access to interviews, archival footage, photos, and other materials. "Prince was a genius and a joy and a jolt to the senses," DuVernay told Deadline. "The only way I know how to make this film is with love. And with great care. I'm honored to do so and grateful for the opportunity entrusted to me by the estate."
Prince had reportedly reached out to Ava before his passing to work on a project together.
Apple Music is also reportedly producing a documentary on Prince and the Revolution's legendary 1983 Minneapolis First Avenue concert, according to Variety.
