English (English subtitles)


This documentary takes viewers behind the curtain to explore the creation of smash-hit musical ‘Hamilton’, the history behind it, and those who made it happen. The musical tells the story of one of America’s founding fathers, Alexander Hamilton, through an innovative blend of hip-hop, R&B, and pop music in fresh and exciting new ways. Since opening on Broadway in 2015 it’s received universal acclaim and was nominated for a record-breaking 16 Tony Awards, winning eleven, and has gone on to entertain audiences around the world, including a West End transfer in late 2017. This documentary delves into the artistic process of its creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as profiling its progressive diverse casting, the construction of the songs, and the production’s American Revolution setting.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
