After being taken down earlier this year, the Netflix original documentary Avicii: True Stories is now officially released in the US, UK, and Australia. The documentary originally premiered in October 2017 in Scandinavia and western Europe, six months before Avicii’s death this past April. Following his death, the documentary was removed from the service.
Directed by Levan Tsikurishvili, the documentary follows Avicii’s career and personal life, covering his ups and downs in the industry and his health scares – of which he had more than a few.
Before the documentary was initially released, Tsikurishvili said via press release, “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.”
Avicii took his own life April 20 this year.
