Avicii Releases Documentary AVICII: TRUE STORIES in Select Theaters, Today
Piece of Magic Entertainment announced today that AVICII: TRUE STORIESs, a compelling new documentary film by Levan Tsikurishvili, will be premiering on October 26 in selected cinemas worldwide. Avicii: True Stories traces the unvarnished truth behind the success of Grammy-nominated producer, songwriter and artist Avicii (A.K.A. Tim Bergling)- one of the world's highest grossing live music artists whose seemingly sudden decision last year to quit doing live shows came as a complete chock to his fans and the industry. The film reveals the choices he faced and his thoughts at the time. The showings of Avicii: True Stories will be followed by a 30-minute concert film of Avicii's final show in Ibiza August 26, 2016.

The film traces the artist/DJ's life from his beginnings, all the way to the joy of his success, from his chart-topping global radio hits and subsequent struggles with his physical and mental health. Tsikurishvili followed Bergling for over four years, and captured fly-on-the-wall footage of his experiences and thinking.
Featuring appearances by colleagues such as Chris Martin, Nile Rodgers, David Guetta and Wyclef Jean, Avicii: True Stories is a cautionary tale that explores the taxing nature and intensity of fame from the artist's point of view as much as it is a film for Avicii's die-hard fans.
"I wanted to do a brutally honest film about Tim as a person and not only about Avicii. Everybody knows Avicii but very few people know Tim. I think this documentary really shows Tim's struggle and strength of character. Being a worldwide superstar artist is not as easy as it looks on Instagram", Tsikurishvili says.
