Hillary Rodham Clinton was one of the most polarising presidential candidates in recent political history. Now, as the USA awaits the poll results in 2020, she steps back into the spotlight in the Emmy-nominated, Critics’ Choice-winning documentary series Hillary.

Streaming on Showmax in South Africa, the four-part series not only tracks the political career of this iconic and often controversial public figure, but, through one-on-one interviews and archival footage, attempts to give us a glimpse of the private person, from her childhood in the burbs of Chicago in the ‘50s, through her years as a student and activist, and her time at Yale Law School, where she met Bill Clinton.

Directed and produced by Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes, The Kid Stays in the Picture), Hillary follows her journey from one of the most influential lawyers in America to beleaguered First Lady, New York senator and Secretary of State, and draws on the director’s unprecedented access to her 2016 campaign as the US’s first female presidential contender.
