The film, which premiered to a sold-out audience at the Tribeca Film Festival this past spring, gives an inside look at the life of the Grammy-nominated electronic dance music superstar who stands as one of pop music’s most tireless multi-hyphenates: founder of the taste-making record label Dim Mak and a chart-topping producer-remixer-DJ with his finger pressed firmly to the pulse of cutting-edge youth culture. Vulnerable and often bittersweet, I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead was shot over the course of three years, during the making of his Neon Future double album (Dim Mak/Ultra Music, 2014/15). It follows his journey to play the biggest show of his career and centers around the complex yet loving relationship with his father, the Benihana restaurant tycoon, daredevil athlete and former Olympian Rocky Aoki.
From the main stage of Tomorrowland in Belgium to intimate gatherings at his family home in Japan, it’s an inside look at one of music’s most outstanding characters. The story is complimented by interviews with STEVE‘s mother (another major influence in his life), sister/supermodel Devon Aoki, along with musicians and contemporaries Diplo, Tiesto, Afrojack, Laidback Luke, Travis Barker, Pete Tong and will.i.am, among others.
The film comes from the same team behind the critically acclaimed documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi.  It is directed by Justin Krook and produced by David Gelb (Chef’s TableJiro Dreams of Sushi), Matthew Weaver (Rock of Ages), Happy Walters (The Big Lebowski, The Fighter, Limitless),  Matt ColonExecutive Producers Michael J. Mailis, Hajime Inoue and Joanna Shaw;  and Co-Producer’s Susan WrubelNick Stern and Gaku Kaneko.
