Michelle Obama, former US first lady, has released the trailer for ‘Becoming’, a documentary adaption of her fast-selling memoir. 


The much-awaited documentary is billed for premiere on Netflix, US media-services firm, on Wednesday.

The less than two-minutes visual sees the former first lady chronicling her early days in Chicago, where she was born.

She also examined the hustling and bustling of the city where she grew up as well as the peculiarities of families that made up the place.


The short video also contained clips of Michelle reflecting on her experience with Barrack Obama, her husband, during their eight-year stint in US politics.

The lawyer and author can also be seen stressing the need for people to exude humanity towards one another so as to birth a world where everyone can explore their potentials for societal growth.

Directed by Nadia Hallgren, the much-awaited 89-minute documentary follows Obama’s 34-city book tour between 2018 and 2019.


“The film takes a rare and up-close look at her life, taking viewers behind the scenes as she embarks on a 34-city tour that highlights the power of community to bridge our divides and the spirit of connection that comes when we openly and honestly share our stories,” a synopsis of the documentary on Netflix reads.

TheCable had earlier reported how ‘Becoming’ was adjudged the fastest-selling book in 2018, with over 725,000 copies sold on its debut date according to Forbes.
