Celine Dion - Through the Eyes of the World

Celine: Through the Eyes of the World is the title of the upcoming documentary–concert film chronicling the life of Canadian singer, Céline Dion during her Taking Chances Tour. It will be released on February 17, 2010 by The Hot Ticket, a division of Sony Pictures Entertainment. In French-speaking countries, the film will be titled Céline autour du monde. Celine: Through the Eyes of the World movie will premiere on February 16, 2010 in Miami Florida.

During the 2008-09 Taking Chances Tour, Dion played concerts in 5 continents, 25 countries and 93 cities. Her first tour in 9 years was wildly successful, selling over 3 million tickets.

Intercutting concert performances of Dion's biggest hits with behind the scenes footage, the documentary depicts singer's life during the Taking Chances Tour, giving fans "the unique opportunity to follow Celine everywhere, on stage, backstage, enjoying free time with her family; this movie will show it all".

Sony's president of worldwide distribution, Rory Bruer said of the film: "For fans, this is a chance to both hear an artist in a theater setting with great sound, as well as take a look inside their lives. It isn't like seeing the person live, but it does add that huge element of intimacy".

"This was an amazing world tour, but there's a lot more than just concert footage on this film. I let the cameras follow me everywhere. There are a lot of ups and downs, and it's very personal...and it's definitely the most intimate journey that I've ever shared with my fans", said Dion.

Starting on February 17, 2010 and for 8 days only, fans can enjoy this very limited engagement that will be featured in most movie theatres across North America. Celine: Through the Eyes of the World will screen in major U.S. and Canadian cities on February 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, 25, 27 and 28.
