Canadian rock band The Tragically Hip is unquestionably one of the most beloved music groups in the country, and upcoming documentary Long Time Running aims to capture that feeling.
The documentary, which has been officially selected to screen at this year’s Toronto Film Festival, zooms in on the band’s emotional journey across the country in the summer of 2016 and gets up close with lead singer Gord Downie and the rest of the band.
Aside from intimate interviews with the Hip, the documentary boasts testimonies from the band members’ close friends, behind-the-scenes and backstage footage and reactions from their die-hard fans throughout Canada.
Shots of audience members encapsulate the country’s love for the band and the poignancy of last summer’s tour.
‘Long Time Running’ makes its world premiere at this year’s TIFF, and will open in theatres across the country beginning Sept. 14.
