Long Time Running

At the Twin & Original: "It is deeply sad and positively triumphant. It's everything we need it to be." - NOW

“No other band encapsulates the rugged rock 'n' roll soul of Canada like The Tragically Hip. For 30 years, the Kingston-born quintet have recorded and toured steadily, releasing over a dozen studio albums and bringing their guitar-driven sound and gritty anthems to an uncommonly 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, 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 in support of their new record.

“Featuring arrestingly candid interviews, gorgeous imagery, and, of course, searing performances of Hip favourites, 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.” - TIFF
