“Who does she think she is?” this is how Hulu is presenting its 4-part docu-series on Hillary Rodham Clinton presented at the Sundance Film Festival and at the 70th Berlinale. Director Nanette Burstein describes her approach on her long interview to Hillary Clinton, her first impression when she met her and how she went along working on this 4 part docu-series. Why does Hillary Rodham Clint keep being a person people either love or hate? There are no grey areas. In the interview, Nanette Burstein tries to elaborate how she started from this big question to arise a bigger one on how gender, sex and sexism affected the course of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s election and career in general.

Hillary: A remarkably intimate portrait of a public woman, ​Hillary​ interweaves revealing moments from never-before-seen 2016 campaign footage with biographical chapters of her life. Featuring exclusive interviews with Hillary Rodham Clinton herself, Bill Clinton, Chelsea Clinton, friends and journalists, the series examines how she became at once one of the most admired and vilified women in the world.
