The life of Tim Bergling, aka Avicii, is the subject of a new international documentary film which chronicles his journey from unknown to international superstar and is scheduled for release in 2023.
Directed by Henrik Burman, the film is based on newly-produced material and features family, friends and colleagues as well as never-before-seen archive footage and interviews with Bergling himself.
The film is about the music and the artist who defined an era and changed the world of music forever and is an up-close, intimate, and epic story about his unparalleled successes and his struggles to cope with the pressure.
Burman, whose internationally acclaimed debut film ”Yung Lean: In My Head” premiered at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival said “My goal is to provide an honest and new perspective on both the artist Avicii and Tim’s life. I want this to be a film that surprises the audience and challenges the public’s image of Sweden’s biggest international artist of today and, in doing so, also shine a light on what his music has meant to so many people.”
The first scenes were shot in 2019 and the film is expected to premiere to a worldwide audience in 2023.The film is produced by Björn Tjärnberg and Candamo Film in cooperation with SVT (Swedish National Television).
