The career of the Swedish-born DJ continues to fascinate people around the world. True phenomenon Avicii became known in the 2010s thanks to hits like “Hey Brother” (2013) or “Wake Me Up”. A documentary project on the rise of the artist is in preparation. The latter will be under the direction of Lawrence Bender, who has notably worked with Quentin Tarantino, and manager Orlando John who acts as co-producer.
” AVICII changed the music industry “, Orlando John recently said of the young prodigy, “ People think they know the story, but they really have no idea what really happened. I feel deeply responsible for ensuring that it is told correctly and objectively. This documentary will give audiences a better understanding of the indelible mark left on music and culture. “.
Avicii from shadow to light
The goal of this project is to shed light on Tim Bergling aka Avicii’s road to success from the day he was scouted by Ash Pournouri in 2008 until their split in 2016. It is also expected that the documentary includes new excerpts and interviews from the DJ’s entourage, as well as those of other stars of the world of electro music such as Sebastian Ingrosso. This documentary would be the second put into production concerning the career of Avicii since another had been announced in 2021 by Björn Tjärnberg and Henrik Burman.
This is not the first project devoted to the DJ. A documentary titled “Avicii: True Stories” had already seen the light of day. He then revealed the reasons, in connection with his mental health, which had led him to stop his tour in 2016. While waiting for the release of the new feature film dedicated to him, fans can enjoy the installation “Avicii Experience currently in progress in Stockholm, his hometown.
