Beyonce produced, directed, and edited the documentary. “I wanted the fans to be able to see what I see. It’s a lot of things I reveal about myself that I could never give to a director.”
In stating her reason for making the documentary, she says, “I feel like the only way I can truly tell the story is if I am a part of it. There are a lot of things that I reveal about myself that I would have never given to a different director.”
In the documentary, we can see Beyonce experiencing hard times as well during the tour, such as when she is exhausted after having performed nine nights in a row and she says “nobody cares.”
“When you work that hard, you just need someone to say stop. You know? Your voice is a muscle and it needs rest, and imagine nine days,” she said. “I was just delirious and feeling sorry and bad and I was like, you know, ‘I need rest.’ … And in the end, I cried because clearly I’m a human being and I bleed and I hurt and I cry and I fall just like anybody else.”
