HBO has released the official trailer for "Jane Fonda in Five Acts," a new, upcoming documentary that takes an in-depth look at the life and career of the 80-year-old Oscar-winning actress.

Directed and produced by Susan Lacy, the award-winning director of the Emmy-nominated HBO doc "Spielberg," the film draws on approximately 21 hours of interviews with Fonda who offers a candid examination of herself, detailing her decades-long career in Hollywood as well as her strained relationship with her screen legend father, Peter Fonda.

The HBO documentary will also chronicle Jane's controversial years as an anti-Vietnam War activist in the 1970s when she was notoriously nicknamed as "Hanoi Jane" for touring in Hanoi, North Vietnam on a two-week trip, during which a controversial photo of Fonda sitting on an anti-aircraft gun was used as anti-American propaganda. Fonda has since publicly apologized for the photo, claiming she was manipulated into posing with the weapon.

"I just felt that I had to become a righteous activist. I wanted my life to have meaning," recalls Fonda in the above trailer. "I'm proud of most of what I did ... And I'm very sorry for some of what I did."

Featuring interviews with Robert Reford, Lily Tomlin, and Ted Turner, "Jane Fonda in Five Acts," which premiered to strong reviews at this year's Sundance, will premiere September 24th on HBO.
