Lights, camera, action: Christina Aguilera will be the subject of a forthcoming documentary spanning her life story both personally and professionally. Produced by TIME Studios and Roc Nation, the film will be helmed by Val director Ting Poo.
Xtina cracked open a vault of archival footage for the documentary in addition to inviting cameras to capture recent performances and life developments over the past 18 months.

“Christina Aguilera is one of the most iconic artists of our time, whose music has inspired millions of people around the world,” Poo shared in a statement. “I am truly honored to tell the story of the person behind the music because I know it will equally inspire.”
Roc Nation’s EVP of TV and Film, Lore York, added: “Christina is a true icon, a beacon of never-ending authenticity. As a young artist, she broke rules and blazed paths for future voices. We’re proud to work with Christina and TIME Studios, bringing to life such an intimate project.”
