    Back in 2019, A$AP Rocky spent time in a Swedish prison as a result of a street fight in Stockholm. The incident was talked about around the world, and we're finally going to hear Rocky's side of the story.

    A new documentary is premiering at Tribeca Film Festival about the saga, called Stockholm Syndrome. The documentary, which is directed by The Architects, features both archival footage and interviews. The likes of Kim Kardashian, Tyler, The Creator, A$AP Ferg and more all feature in Stockholm Syndrome.

    Then-US President Donald Trump attempted to get Rocky released from jail. Ultimately, Rocky was found guilty by a Swedish court. However, he wasn't required to serve additional jail time. 

    Speaking about the documentary, Loren Hammonds, Tribeca's Senior Programmer Film & Immersive says, "The film reveals Rocky’s experience with the inequities of the Swedish judicial system and the dangers of stardom and scapegoating through a series of twists and turns, ultimately paralleling the need for prison reform in our own backyard".
