Film follows pop star ahead of his 2020 New Year’s Eve performance
Michael D. Ratner directed the film and was produced by Ratner’s OBB Pictures, Bieber Time Films and Scooter Braun Films.
“Performing live and connecting with my fans through music is deeply meaningful to me,” Bieber said in a statement. “Especially during the past year, being able to provide a service and share my gifts to bring some happiness to people during such a sad and scary time has meant the world to me. This film documents an intense and exciting time, preparing for a return to the stage during this season of real uncertainty. Coming together with my team, overcoming the obstacles, and delivering a special show, surrounded by friends and family; it’s all here.”
“I couldn’t be prouder of our continued partnership with Justin as well as the SB Films team and the collaborative effort by all to make this project possible. Amazon Studios is the ideal partner to share this inspiring and feel-good film on a global scale. Make sure to watch it with the volume maxed out,” Ratner said.
“’Justin Bieber: Our World’ is a raw and unprecedented snapshot of Justin and those closest to him during a pivotal time in his life and career,” Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said in a statement. “Filmmaker Michael D. Ratner has beautifully captured Justin’s spirit through rare moments both on and off stage. We are excited to invite Bieber fans around the world to experience what is a truly intimate portrayal of one of the world’s most iconic musicians.”
Bieber reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the second time in eight months with his song in collaboration with The Kid LAROI, “Stay.” His song “Peaches” also hit No. 1 and hit 1.5 billion streams worldwide, and his eighth album “Justice” also hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart.
Ratner previously directed the documentary about Demi Lovato “Dancing With the Devil,” which was the opening night film at SXSW 2021, and he also directed Bieber’s YouTube Originals project “Seasons.”
