Just in time for Canada Day, a new trailer has been released for the upcoming documentary about the Tragically Hip’s legendary 15-show Man Machine Poem concert tour.
The film “Long Time Running” covers The Hip’s 2016 farewell tour from the lead up to their first concert up to the final performance on August 20th – watched across the country – back here in their home town.
Featuring behind the scenes clips, interviews with band members and reactions from Hip fans, the film is slated to premiere on CTV in late fall after airing on Bell Media’s MUCH, CraveTV, and The Movie Network. It will also be released in select theatres in September.
“Long Time Running” is directed by Canadians Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier, and produced by Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn.
