Gaga: Five Foot Two is a 2017 documentary film about American singer-songwriter Lady Gaga, and the events in and around the production and release of her fifth studio album, Joanne, and her subsequent halftime performance at Super Bowl LI. The film, directed by visual artist and documentarian Chris Moukarbel, is set to make its debut at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival before having a worldwide streaming release on Netflix on September 22, 2017. It was also shown during Joanne World Tour European Leg before each of her shows.


According to Netflix, Gaga: Five Foot Two is of cinéma vérité style, as to give viewers "unfiltered, behind-the-scenes access" to a year in the life of Gaga, during which they cover the production and release of her fifth studio album, Joanne. Many events are covered including her experiences with her entourage, her encounters with fans and her struggle with chronic pain caused by the onset of fibromyalgia. The film also offers an extensive look at the creation and execution of her critically lauded Super Bowl LI halftime performance, in addition to a variety of other topics and events, including her home life, the filming of her guest role as the character 'Scáthach' on American Horror Story: Roanoke, and a discussion about her feud with singer Madonna, among other things.
