Maxine’s Baby: The Tyler Perry Story, a new Prime Video movie coming out soon, is about his life. The movie will be shown for the first time on November 17. It was made by Gelila Bekele and Armani Ortiz.
The documentary is called “a nod to Perry’s mother’s love and a tender, intimate portrait” of Perry, a “visionary and innovator.”
Many of Perry’s fans know that he was abused and had a hard childhood, but his relationship with his mother stayed the same through all of the bad things that happened.
Perry’s plays and movies, which are about Black women rising above their circumstances and men who might try to bring them down, also talk about this relationship.
Tyler Perry is the perfect American multihyphenate. He is a writer, actor, director, studio head, and media giant. But this entertainment giant hides a humble man who is trying to heal from childhood trauma by turning his pain into hope.
Maxine’s Baby: The Tyler Perry Story, which is a tribute to his mother’s love, is a tender and intimate portrait of Tyler Perry, a visionary and innovator, and his journey to the top of an industry that didn’t always want him there.
With unrestricted access, directors Gelila Bekele and Armani Ortiz take us into the inner world of a man whose full story has never been told before as he becomes a father and a media mogul on a mission to pave his own way to the top. This project took nearly a decade to complete.
The product is a powerful reminder that you need to know where you’ve been to know where you want to go.
