HIGHLIGHTS
  • Bill Gates Netflix docu-series out September 20 on Netflix
  • Made by An Inconvenient Truth director Davis Guggenheim
  • Offers a look at Microsoft past, Gates’ charitable work

Netflix has released a trailer for Inside Bill’s Brain: Decoding Bill Gates — the upcoming three-part documentary series with a clunky title that offers a look at the Microsoft co-founder — which comes across as a part-commercial for his charity Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and a part-deep dive into his past that involved being ruthless as a Silicon Valley entrepreneur. The trailer doesn’t give a clear idea of how revealing the docu-series — made by Oscar-winning director of An Inconvenient Truth, Davis Guggenheim — will be, though we should know a bit more after it premieres at the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado, USA over the weekend.

The Inside Bill’s Brain: Decoding Bill Gates trailer opens with Guggenheim asking him rapid-fire questions, which involve his favourite animal (dog), favourite food (hamburger), and what he has for breakfast (nothing), before jumping to a big one: what’s his biggest fear. Gates responds: “I don’t want my brain to stop working.” After the jump, his wife Melinda then says her husband is a multi-processor instead of just saying multi-tasker, an obvious nod to his Microsoft career. Melinda then offers something more concrete, delving into how he thinks and what bothers him
