Today, a new documentary covering the life and legacy of Sidney Poitier is airing on Apple TV+. The movie, simply named Sidney, is now available to watch on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and anywhere you can get the TV app.
Sidney Poitier was a legendary actor, director, activist, and diplomat. Widely regarded as the first black film star, he became the first black winner of the Academy Award for Best Actor in 1964.
Unfortunately Poitier died on January 6, 2022. Work on the documentary had already begun at that time. The film was produced by Oprah Winfrey, directed by Reginald Hudlin, and produced in partnership with the Poitiers family.
