Alejandro Sanz fans eagerly waiting for a new documentary about the pop star to premiere on Netflix can finally stream the movie in the United States and Latin American countries. It is still not available in Sanz’s native Spain.  

Netflix had previously announced that Sanz: Lo Que Fui es lo Que Soy (What I Was Is Who I Am) would be released last Saturday (Aug 18). When it did not appear, Sanz followers were quick to protest on social media.   

On Monday (Aug. 20), the doc’s sudden appearance on Netflix was of course quickly followed by fans expressing their relief.   

The documentary captures Sanz's journey from playing rock songs with friends on the streets of his neighborhood as a teen to playing flamenco guitar with Paco de Lucia, to recording the two biggest-selling albums in Spain and becoming one of Latin music’s biggest stars while remaining “a normal person.”   

ShakiraMiguel Bosé and Juan Luis Guerra are among the many other artists who make appearances in the film.  

Lo Que Fui es lo Que Soy had a theatrical premiere at the Malaga Film Festival on April 19, and showed in theaters around Spain.  But Spanish viewers who have been waiting to watch it on Netflix are still waiting.
