Born in the Bahamas in 1927, Sidney Poitier first turned his hand to acting after emigrating to the US, aged 15. From there, he rose to the greatest heights of Hollywood stardom, in 1964 becoming the first black artist to win the Best Actor Oscar, for his role in Lilies of the Field, and inspiring a generation of future actors.

A dazzling array of such stars are interviewed in this revealing tribute to Poitier, including Denzel Washington, Halle Berry, Morgan Freeman and the film's producer Oprah Winfrey, to name but a few.

Director Reginald Hudlin celebrates Poitier's iconic film work, and delves into his life to discover the experiences and qualities that set Poitier apart - as an actor, an activist, a father, a friend and the proud son of his Bahamian parents.
