Netflix's Kanye West Documentary 'JEEN-YUHS' To Premiere at Sundance

Netflix’s JEEN-YUHS three-part Kanye West docuseries which follows the artist’s rise to global stardom is slated to premiere at the 2022 Sundance Festival in January. 

The documentary is directed by Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah, will hit Netflix for streaming later next year. 

“Shot over 20 years, this documentary trilogy is an intimate and revealing portrait of Kanye West’s experience, showcasing both his formative days trying to break through and his life today as a global brand and artist,” Netflix wrote of the project on Twitter.

The trailer, which was released in September, shows decades of old footage of Ye and Mos Def going back and forth on lyrics that would eventually land on “Two Words” from West’s debut record, The College Dropout.

The film will include never-before-seen footage from early in Ye’s career. Though Ye is not involved in the documentary himself, he did approve Simmons and Ozah’s footage for usage in the film. According to Billboard, the documentary was sold for over $30 million USD in April.
