Chadwick Boseman’s Life & Legacy To Be Celebrated In Upcoming Netflix Documentary ‘Portrait Of An Artist’

14 April 2021

Netflix have released the trailer for an upcoming documentary titled Chadwick Boseman: Portrait Of An Artist, which pays tribute to the late, great star.

Due for release on Saturday (April 17), the documentary will celebrate the life and legacy of Boseman and will feature appearances from the likes of Denzel Washington and Viola Davis who praise his “extraordinary commitment to his craft”.

The trailer begins with Boseman discussing his career, saying: “I am an artist. People call me an actor. I wouldn’t necessarily call myself an actor. I would call myself an artist.”

The synopsis reads: “Viola Davis, Denzel Washington, Spike Lee, Phylicia Rashad and more invite us into a conversation to explore Chadwick Boseman’s extraordinary commitment to his craft in an intimate look at the Oscar®-nominated actor’s artistry, and the acting process which informed his transformative performances.”

The trailer itself is a moving tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who sadly passed away last August following a four-year battle with colon cancer.
