Interspersed with candid footage and interviews detailing the preparation and powerful intent behind her vision, Homecoming gives a peek into the process and emotional and physical sacrifices it took to conceptualise and execute a performance that became a cultural movement. This stand-alone Netflix original is now available globally.

Homecoming recognises the African American visionaries who inspired Beyoncé, including HBCU alums Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, activist Marian Wright Edelman, and scholar W.E.B. Du Bois, in addition to cultural luminaries like Nina Simone, Maya Angelou, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Audre Lorde. Beyoncé’s personal knowledge of the relevance and celebration of HBCUs started with her father, Mathew Knowles, an alumnus of Fisk University.

Shot over eight months, the film follows the global entertainer as she returns to the stage after the birth of her twins. it highlights the comprehensive preparation involved in creating her groundbreaking performance, including four months of band rehearsals followed by four months of dance rehearsals. More than 150 musicians, dancers and other creatives were hand-picked by the artist herself.

In juggling dual roles as director of both her live performance and the film that captured the process of making it, Beyoncé said: “It was one of the hardest jobs I have taken on but I knew that I had to push myself and my team to go beyond great to legendary. We knew nothing like this was ever done on a festival level before and it needed to be iconic beyond compare. The performance was a homage to an important part of African American culture. It had to be true to those who know and entertaining and enlightening to those who needed to learn. In making the film and re-telling the story, the purpose remained the same.”

Many in the cast, from band and singers to dancers and steppers are former HBCU students, immersed in the HBCU marching band tradition.  They joined Beyoncé’s own group of performers, some of whom have toured with her for years. Viewers not only get to see the intense dance rehearsals and talent of these amazing artists, but hear their personal journey from HBCU student to artist and the lifelong impact that comes from performing alongside Beyoncé in this historic concert.

“So many people who are culturally aware and intellectually sound are graduates from historically black colleges and universities, including my father,” she says in the film. “There is something incredibly important about the HBCU experience that must be celebrated and protected.”

Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé was directed and produced by Beyoncé Knowles-Carter. Longtime collaborator Ed Burke served as co-director. Steve Pamon and Erinn Williams are executive producers.
