“Avicii changed the music industry. People think they know the story, but they have really no clue as to what actually happened”, said John. “I feel a profound responsibility to ensure that it’s told accurately and objectively. This documentary will give the audiences a deeper understanding of the brand that left an indelible mark on music and culture.”

“What got me excited was not just the story of Avicii, but also the take Orlando had as a director. It’s that take that’s going to make this eye-opening,” said Bender.
