J Balvin has made his way to the top of the charts and The Boy from Medellín will give fans an inside look at the artist as one of the biggest international acts.
Directed and produced by Matthew Heineman, The Boy from Medellín follows J Balvin as he prepares for the most important concert of his career–a sold-out stadium show in his hometown of Medellín, Colombia. But as the performance draws ever closer, the streets explode with growing political unrest, forcing the Latin Grammy-winning musician to wrestle with his responsibility as an artist to his country and his legions of fans around the globe. As the public pressure of the approaching concert heightens, behind the scenes Balvin also continues to deal with the anxiety and depression that has plagued him for years. Shot entirely in the dramatic week leading up to the concert, The Boy from Medellín gives us unprecedented access to “Reggaeton’s Global Ambassador,” and provides an immersive look into one of the most pivotal and emotionally charged moments of his life.
The documentary was produced by Juan Camilo Cruz, Myles Estey, Joedan Okun, along with executive producers Fabio Acosta, Scooter Braun, Allison Kaye, Scott Manson, Jennifer McDaniels, Jenna Millman, Jose Alvaro Osorio Balvin, and Juan Diego Villegas.
