Preview: Venus and Serena Williams documentary

by: Jonathan Scott April 02, 2013

The hotly anticipated documentary film by Maiken Baird and Michelle Major about the Williams sisters is en route, releasing nationwide (stateside) on May 10. The movie, simply titled Venus and Serena, debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2012, and features not just interviews with both tennis stars and archival footage heavily borrowing on their father's aura and their own beaded tomes, but also guest clips with the likes of everyone from John McEnroe to Anna Wintour. Here's the two-and-a-half-minute clip:

I couldn't agree more with the quote—from whom I'm not sure—that airs at the end of the preview: "Through their injuries, it's kind of woken people up to the reality that there will be a tremendous void when they're gone."

For more info about the filmmakers, see this Vanity Fair sitdown interview and check out the movie's Facebook page for impending updates. It has been rated PG-13—and your loyal Spin keeper can't wait to see why—with a run time of about one hour and 40 minutes. As a bonus, here are its makers, Baird and Majors, with former Fugees ringleader Wyclef Jean. The R&B star contributed the film's music.
