LONG TIME RUNNING

LONG TIME RUNNING

JENNIFER BAICHWAL & NICHOLAS DE PENCIER · Canada · 2016 · 97 mins · PG
IMDB

No other band encapsulates the rugged rock 'n' roll soul of Canada like The Tragically Hip. For 30 years, the Kingston-born quintet have released over a dozen albums and brought their gritty anthems to a passionate fan base. When it was announced last year that singer Gord Downie had been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, it looked like the end of the road for the Hip. Instead, their greatest journey was just beginning.

Helmed by co-directors Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier, whose previous collaborations include the award-winning documentaries “Manufactured Landscapes,” and “Watermark”) “Long Time Running” tracks the most trying chapter in the Hip's long history. Determined to go out on his own terms, Downie convinces his bandmates to tour. Given Downie's weakened state, no one really believed it would happen. But he and the boys marshal their forces to deliver the most exhilarating and celebratory shows of their lives.

Featuring candid interviews, gorgeous imagery, and, of course, searing performances of Hip favourites like "Blow at High Dough," "Grace, Too" and the heartrending tribute to endurance that gives the film its title, Long Time Running is neither morbid nor unduly sombre. Rather, this is a film about wonder, perseverance, and feeling alive even when dark shadows loom.
