Madonna ‘Secret’ / Dir. Jonas Åkerlund

‘I’m Going to Tell You a Secret’ is a 2005 American documentary film that follows singer Madonna on her 2004 Re-Invention World Tour. Directed by Jonas Åkerlund, the film premiered on MTV on October 21, 2005, and was released on DVD on June 20, 2006, by Warner Bros. Records.

The documentary was originally called The Re-Invented Process, referencing the tour and the Steven Klein exhibition titled X-STaTIC Pro=CeSS. It starts with imagery from the exhibition and Madonna auditioning dancers for the tour, continues with her entourage travelling through different cities and performing, the singer’s introspection on her life, her marriage, her religion, and her children, and ends with Madonna’s visit to Israel in the midst of protests.
