That’s when “Gaga: Five Foot Two,” a portrait of a year in the life of Lady Gaga, is released. The documentary premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

In the trailer, Gaga is heard saying: “I’m alone, Brandon, every night. And all these people will leave, right? And I go from everyone touching me all day, and talking at me all day, to total silence.”

Variety reports that Chris Moukarbel directed the film, “aimed at showing an unguarded look at Gaga through a series of personal highs and lows and the culmination of a year’s emotional journey.”

Lisa Nishimura, a Netflix Vice President, is quoted as saying: “It is a rare moment when one is invited behind the curtain to witness the raw truth of an individual, even more so when that person happens to be one of the most recognizable, influential and scrutinized public figures in culture today.”

Lady Gaga telegraphed the news via a tweetstorm, beginning with “I’m known for being larger than life, but really I’m just… #GagaFiveFootTwo.”
