Beyonce is set to direct a documentary about her own life.

The singer is working on the film for US broadcasters HBO. It is said to include unreleased, behind-the-scenes footage of Beyonce as well as live performance footage. Some of the footage has been shot by Beyonce on her own laptop, reports The Boom Box.

It will stream exclusively via HBO on February 16, 2013.

Speaking about the film, Michael Lombardo, president of HBO programming said: "Everybody knows Beyonce's music, but few know Beyonce the person. Along with electrifying footage of Beyonce onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman."

The film will come after Beyonce appears as the main attraction at next year's Super Bowl halftime show on February 3, 2013.

Beyonce will appear at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans during the prestigious American football game.

It thought that Beyonce will bring on special guests during the high profile slot, including her husband Jay-Z and fellow members of her former girl group, Destiny's Child.

Beyonce has reportedly begun working on the follow-up to 2011's '4'. According to The Sun, the singer was spotted in a New York studio with Jay-Z's producer Hit-Boy and Kanye West recording tracks for her fifth studio album.
