Austin-Texas based South By South West (SXSW) Festival recently announced that the forthcoming motion picture release Leave The World Behind, a movie starring Swedish House Mafia, directed by Christian Larson and executively produced by Jonas Åkerlund, is to be one of the official selection films at this year’s film festival.
The film is a music documentary following the break-up of Swedish House Mafia, and their subsequent One Last Tour, the largest electronic tour in history, selling over 1,000,000 tickets globally in one week. Director Christian Larson captures the band in a unique fly on the wall manner as they decide to call it quits and seek closure by finally going on the tour they had always dreamed of.
With top live moments, huge laughs and dark lows, the band start to unravel why they came to the decision to end the biggest achievement of their lives to date to save their friendship. As the tour finale edges closer and closer, the debate of why it’s all happening becomes more intense.
The movie will get its world premiere in March during the SXSW Festival.
