A documentary on the most historic magazine cover of the decade.

"Earlier this month, Caitlyn Jenner introduced herself to the world in a groundbreaking, 22-page Vanity Fair feature photographed by Annie Leibovitz and written by Pulitzer Prize-winner Buzz Bissinger. Now, in this new documentary by Jeremy Elkin, Jenner, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, and the magazine’s staff reflect on putting the story together, keeping it under wraps in the hacking-scandal era, and unleashing it to a response that was even more overwhelming than expected. The film features never-before-seen footage from V.F.’s New York office and Jenner’s Malibu photo shoot. Moments after wrapping her session with Leibovitz, Jenner reflects: “You look at some of the people, the [transgender] pioneers who tried to get the message out. They made it easier for me. I hope, with my honesty, I can make it easier for someone else down the line.”" - Vanity Fair
