Tragically Hip fans rejoice! The World Premiere for “Long Time Running” will happen at the Toronto International Film Festival and then hit theatres across the country September 14th.
Last summer, The Tragically Hip made history with an emotional Canadian tour. The documentary highlights the concerts and lead-up to the shows, following the emotional journey across the country and gets up close and personal with lead singer Gord Downie and the rest of the band.
The trailer has just been released! Watch it below:
You can now pre-order your tickets.
In May 2016, Downie revealed he had been battling incurable brain cancer since December 2015. Shortly after, The Tragically Hip announced a 15-show Canada tour in celebration of their latest studio album, Man Machine Poem.
Directed by Canadian documentary filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier (Watermark, Act of God) and produced by Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn (Hip-Hop Evolution, Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage), there is some serious Canuck pedigree here.
