Directed by Henrik Burman, the film follows the release of Yung Lean’s seventh LP ‘Starz’ last year.
The documentary explores how Yung Lean was conceived as a persona to help Jonatan escape from what he perceived as the drudgery of his daily life. It goes into his struggles with drugs, death and mental illness.
The Short List version, available via Noisey, includes an exclusive interview with VICE founder Suroosh Alvi.Watch Yung Lean: In My Head below.
