José González Announces New Documentary Film 'A Tiger In Paradise' Directed By Longtime Collaborator Mikel Cee Karlsson

A Tiger in Paradise, is the title of the new documentary, about the musician José González, the film will have its world premiere in the main competition at CPH:DOX on March 18th, 2023. This is also the first stop for the unique special event tour that accompanies the film, called ”An exclusive evening with José Gonzalez”. The special event consists of a screening of the documentary, a curated talk with José and a live performance where he will play some of his most personal and popular songs.

A Tiger in Paradise is produced by the multiple Academy Award nominated and Palme d’Or winning film company Plattform Produktion (Triangle of Sadness & The Square) and directed by José’s long time collaborator Mikel Cee Karlsson, who has directed many of José’s music videos and also directed the 2010 film The Extraordinary Ordinary Life of José González. The new film is described as “a visual journey into José González’s inner world of thoughts and shadows, an intimate look at the creative, sharp and fragile mind behind the music.”

The screening of the film will be followed by a conversation between José González and director Mikel Cee Karlsson, where they make a deep dive into the themes raised in the film, how it all connects to José’s music, lyrics and worldview and tie it all together with the live performance of some of José’s most personal and popular songs.

“I’m very excited to present this event together with Mikel. He’s been great at picking up subtle ideas in the music and in our conversations, to bring them to life in my music videos, and now this documentary. This hybrid event will be great to invite the fans even more into the themes in the film and some key songs, but also my personal history which I haven’t shared in this way before,” says José González.

Director Mikel Cee Karlsson adds: “The goal with this hybrid event is to create a special collective experience together with the audience, where the film, live show and performance gives a unique insight into José’s mind and music. Something that cannot be experienced anywhere else – outside of these venues.”
