On Canada Day, we are tipping our hat to “Canada’s Band” with a screening of The Tragically Hip documentary LONG TIME RUNNING, a concert-fueled chronicle of the emotionally epic now-legendary 2016 tour that captured the heart of the nation.
Viewers will be given a unique and exclusive perspective into The Tragically Hip’s world through intimate moments, behind-the-scenes and on-stage footage, personal interviews with the band and close friends, as well as reactions from their devoted fans from across the country. Featuring Gord Downie, Gord Sinclair, Bobby Baker, Johnny Fay, and Paul Langlois.
“In the end – and this may well be the end – LONG TIME RUNNING is about perseverance, both the band’s and Downie‘s.” (Globe & Mail)
“It is deeply sad and positively triumphant. It’s everything we need it to be.” (NOW Toronto)
“Hip fans will enjoy not only the behind-the-scenes footage of Downie getting ready for each night’s show on the trek but the entire group’s collective memory of their 30-year personal and professional journey.” (Toronto Sun)
