Yours Truly debuts a special look at one of our favorite artists' formative moments. In 2008, the documentary crew flew to Los Angeles to shoot a then little-known Miguel around his neighborhood and childhood home. The footage was shelved and never released. This summer, they flew back to speak to him again, and the results are nearly surreal: a fully formed artist in dialogue with a younger version of himself.
"We basically stole a camcorder from my day job and flew ourselves to LA to spend the day with Miguel," co-director Will Abramson tells the FADER. "I'd only heard a few songs, but they were good, even great, and he was on Blu's Below the Heavens so that was already enough for me. This piece is about growth. The experience we had with him, where he opened up the private places of his life, inspired us to grow into Yours Truly. And seeing him grow to where he's at now, while staying so true to the ideals and even the words he used back then, is humbling. I'm proud that Yours Truly is a part of his story."
