The video is a gorgeous combination of images of Tim Bergling from their last visit to Île Sainte-Marie in Madagascar in 2016 during the filming of True Stories and a second visit that Tsikurishvili made after Tim’s death to honor his legacy.
In a statement about the video, Tsikurishvili wrote:
“I have been working with Tim since about 2013. During these years, we made 8 music videos, 3 concert movies and 2 documentaries together. In 2016, right after his last show, Tim, Tim’s childhood friend Awat, and I spent 19 beautiful days in Madagascar, Île Sainte-Marie. We spoke about everything, laughed, played monopoly, hung out with lemurs, and explored the entire island together. Now, two-and-a-half years later, I returned to the island to remember Tim, to honor his legacy, and to recreate the memories that will stay with us forever.
This video is a collection of Tsikurisvili’s smartphone videos plus some parts of unused material from the documentary Avicii: True Stories and newly shot footage. He also created additioanl 3D animations in order to recreate images illustrating private moments for which there was not video.
