Hillary Clinton’s former longtime aide Huma Abedin accompanied the former secretary of state to the New York City premier of the four-part documentary about Clinton, the Daily Mail reports.

The documentary, titled “Hillary,” is made up of a series of interviews with Clinton and several people close to her. It will focus on the major events in her life, from early childhood through her unsuccessful presidential campaign in 2016. The Hulu series reportedly obtained over 2,000 hours of footage from her campaign, and more than 35 hours of interviews with the former secretary of state.

Abedin, the vice chair of Clinton’s 2016 campaign and her deputy chief of staff from 2009 to 2013, joined Clinton on the red carpet Wednesday evening, and followed her when Clinton left for an interview later than night on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Former U.S. Chief of Protocol Capricia Marshall also attended the premier, as did actresses Kathy Najimy and Zosia Mamet, model Iman, fashion designer Donna Karan, and the documentary’s director, Nanette Burstein, who also directed “The Kid Stays In The Picture” and “Gringo.”

Burstein said at the documentary’s world premier at Sundance that she “felt strongly that [she] did not want to make a campaign film,” according to Entertainment Weekly. “I was still overcome with all the emotions of ’16 and it felt too soon to relitigate that. But more importantly I felt like there was a much bigger story, and that story was the life and times of Secretary Clinton. And really, to go deep and understand her life was an opportunity to understand our culture, our history of partisan politics, the women’s movement — to understand where we are now.”
