Director Barbara Kopple has previously won two Academy Awards for Best Documentary Feature—once for Harlan County, USA and again for American Dream. Her latest endeavor, This is Everything, will premiere at Sundance Film Festival before becoming available through YouTube Red on February 8. 

Gorgeous, who began creating makeup tutorial videos as Gregory Lazzarato, came out to her followers as transgender in December 2013 and has since garnered 2.2 million subscribers to her channel.

"Having Gigi happy is way more important than me having old Greg," her father says teary-eyed in the official trailer. Watch, below.
