Exactly one year after Swedish House Mafia's final show together at Ultra Music Fest, a documentary about the EDM supergroup's final days will premiere at South by Southwest this March.

Directed by Christian Larson—the man behind the music video for their 2010 Pharrell collabo track "One"—Leave the World Behind follows Sebastian Ingrosso, Axwell and Steve Angello on their farewell world tour. It also sheds some light on the trio's decision to disband when they were at the top of their game, at least in terms of international popularity. Last year, DJ Alesso told Fuse he was the first person the trio told about their impending split, a talk he described as "heartbreaking."

Leave the World Behind will premiere at some point during SXSW's film week, which runs from March 7-15. Last year, Green Day debuted Broadway Idiot—a documentary about turning their immensely popular American Idiot album into a Broadway musical—at the Austin music fest.
