Justin Bieber: Our World is a revealing and exhilarating look at the global superstar’s first live full concert in three years. Award-winning filmmaker Michael D. Ratner chronicles the final 30 days of preparation for a groundbreaking performance that takes place on New Year’s Eve 2020 on the roof of the legendary Beverly Hilton.
A small camera crew follows the two-time Grammy-winning artist and his longtime collaborators through rehearsals, construction of the massive set on the rooftop and painstaking planning for live streaming the concert to millions.
Bieber himself, alongside his wife Hailey, supplements the coverage with self-shot videos, bringing the audience into their home and daily routine.
But before the 240 invited guests can line the balconies of the hotel suites overlooking the stage, an array of challenges threatens to derail the ambitious undertaking, including strict Covid-19 protocols, a rare Los Angeles thunderstorm and a last-minute rush by fans to log into the livestream.
Finally Bieber, backed by his dancers, band and an army of stagehands, delivers an electrifying performance amid a spectacular array of lights, lasers and pyrotechnic effects.
From the wistful “Boyfriend” to an emotional “Holy,” dedicated to Hailey, the artist’s often autobiographical songs have the elated concertgoers singing and dancing along with him.
A highly personal look at one of the world’s best-selling recording artists and an exuberant account of a group of artists doing what they do best, Justin Bieber: Our World will thrill die-hard fans as well as anyone who just enjoys infectious pop music.
