Act 1 of Netflix’s three-part documentary Jeen-Yuhs: A Kanye Trilogy is getting a nationwide theatrical release on February 10, Rolling Stone reports. The first part of the film will hit theaters ahead of its Netflix premiere on February 16. Netflix issued new a teaser trailer with the release date earlier today (January 10). The clip includes footage of Kanye West (now legally known as Ye), scored by Caroline Shaw’s “Partita for 8 Voices.”
Jeen-Yuhs has been in the making for over two decades, and was helmed by Clarence “Coodie” Simmons and Chike Ozah (aka Coodie & Chike). It will feature previously unreleased archival footage of Ye. The film was slated to premiere at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival later this month, however the in-person ceremony was eventually canceled due to the rise of Omicron. A virtual event will take its place instead. Netflix issued a teaser clip for the documentary last September.
