Hillary Clinton to attend Sundance for premiere of ‘Hillary’
Hillary Clinton will be among the star-studded crowd attending this year’s Sundance Film Festival, with the former secretary of State poised to participate in a Q&A on a documentary focused on her 2016 presidential bid.
The ex-senator and first lady will participate in a discussion about the docuseries “Hillary” at the annual film festival on Jan. 25, according to the event’s organizers. Clinton will appear alongside “Hillary” director Nanette Burstein, the Sundance website says.
Burstein’s four-part docuseries, which will be screened at Sundance, “interweaves biographical chapters of Clinton’s life with previously unreleased behind-the-scenes footage from her 2016 presidential campaign, resulting in an exceptionally intimate memoir.”
Burstein was given “free rein to pose even the most difficult questions to Clinton,” according to promotional materials for the project.
Clinton, 72, isn’t the only high-profile name who could make an appearance at the Salt Lake City, Utah, festival. Other documentaries being shown at Sundance include “Miss Americana,” about Taylor Swift, and the films “We are Freestyle Love Supreme” and “Siempre, Luis,” which involve “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
“Crip Camp,” which was produced by former President Obama and Michelle Obama’s production company, Higher Ground, is also scheduled to compete in the festival’s documentary contest.
