SBS picks up Hillary doco
4 part doco series on former US First Lady is coming to SBS.
SBS has picked up documentary series Hillary by filmmaker Nanette Burstein (The Kid Stays In The Picture).
Burstein spent 35 hours interviewing the former US First Lady and Secretary of State for the 4 part series.
It screened at the Sundance Film Festival and screened at the Berlinale last month and will air on SBS later this year.
Going back to her childhood in Illinois and education at Yale Law School, Hillary covers plenty of ground, including the Monica Lewinsky scandal, and Clinton’s time as Senator of New York, First Lady and Secretary of State, leading up to her being the first female presidential nominee of her country. The series also features interviews with husband Bill and daughter Chelsea, former President Barack Obama and many more.
With access to behind-the-scenes footage of Clinton’s run to the 2016 presidential election, we see how close she came to defeating Donald Trump at the final hurdle.
