Starting Nov. 15, “MAHMOOD” is available on Prime Video: the docufilm that tells the story of Mahmood’s life between Milan and Egypt, his closest affections, music, victories at Sanremo, Eurovision, the European tour, and backstage footage of his work. Directed by Giorgio Testi, written by Virginia W. Ricci and produced by Red Carpet (ILBE Group), in collaboration with Tulipani Management and Prime Video.

“MAHMOOD” recounts, through the voice of Alessandro Mahmoud and the testimonies of personalities such as Blanco, Carmen Consoli, Dardust and Paola Zukar, the path that, as a young boy born and raised in the Milanese suburbs, led him to success, making him a musical phenomenon.

Two-time Sanremo winner, a sold-out European tour, two participations in the Eurovision Song Contest, billions of views and streams of his songs and videos, collaborations with the most followed and respected artists of the contemporary pop, R&B, rap and trap music scene (from Blanco to Carmen Consoli, from Marco Mengoni to Elodie and Elisa, from Fabri Fibra to Guè Pequeno, Massimo Pericolo, Sfera Ebbasta).

The documentary follows the singer-songwriter throughout his European tour but goes beyond the pure and simple musical celebration to build an intimate narrative, made up of solitary moments, crowd baths during live performances and relationships with the people who have left a mark on his personal life: his family, always present and his point of reference, his friends, his collaborators. An inner journey that has music as its backbone and where love and absence find their way to coexist.
