Lil Nas X Announces New Documentary ‘Long Live Montero’

Lil Nas X‘s new documentary will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival next month.

Lil Nas X: Long Live Montero, chronicling the rapper’s life on the road, was directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada and Zac Manuel.

The film deals with “an artist on tour navigating identity, family, expectations and acceptance, all while reflecting on his place within the legacy of Black, queer performers,” says a press release.

The documentary follows Lil Nas X as he embarks on his maiden global tour.

“Lil Nas X: Long Live Montero is a triumphant ode to the extraordinary power of self-expression, music, and identity,” TIFF CEO Cameron Bailey said in a statement. “In this groundbreaking documentary, we witness Lil Nas X challenging boundaries and reshaping the artistic landscape.”

“The film’s captivating journey underscores the profound impact of Lil Nas X, who fearlessly brings audiences together through the universal language of music,” he added. “We are thrilled to host Lil Nas X at TIFF this year.”
