Oprah Winfrey to executive produce late actor Sidney Poitier’s documentary

A documentary about the career and life of the late actor Sidney Poitier is currently in production with Oprah Winfrey attached as executive producer for the Apple Original Films release.

Poitier, an accomplished performer, producer and director and the first black winner of the Academy Award for best actor, died on Friday at the age of 94. Apple and Winfrey have been working on the documentary for more than a year.

Poitier’s family said in a statement, “To us Sidney Poitier was not only a brilliant actor, activist and a man of incredible grace and moral fortitude, he was also a devoted and loving husband, a supportive and adoring father and a man, who always put family first. Although he is no longer here with us in this realm, his beautiful soul will continue to guide and inspire us. He will live on in us, his grandchildren and great-grandchildren — in every belly laugh, every curious inquiry, every act of compassion and kindness. His legacy will live on in the world, continuing to inspire not only with his incredible body of work, but even more so with his humanity.”
