J Balvin Releases Trailer for Upcoming Documentary 'The Boy From Medellín'

J Balvin has shared a new trailer for his documentary, The Boy From Medellín, which will arrive on Amazon Prime Video May 7th.

The documentary follows Balvin during a tense week as he prepares for a concert in his hometown of Medellín. The concert coincided with a number of protests in Colombia, including protests against corruption, police brutality (specifically the death of an 18-year-old who was hit by a police projectile), and various austerity measures imposed by Colombia’s conservative government.

The Boy From Medellín trailer shows Balvin contending with anxiety and depression that have plagued him for years, the nerves that come with the biggest show of his career, and his responsibility as an artist to speak on Colombia's unrest, despite his reluctance to get involved in politics.

The Boy From Medellín was directed by Matthew Heineman. He was nominated for an Oscar for his 2015 film, Cartel Land, about the Mexican Drug War.
