Virtual Screening: Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and the Band
Wednesday, April 29, 2020 - Tuesday, June 16, 2020
A confessional and cautionary documentary about Robbie Robertson’s young life, and the creation of one of the most enduring groups in the history of popular music – The Band. The film blends rare archival footage, photography, iconic songs, and interviews with Robertson’s friends and collaborators, including Martin Scorsese, Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, and more.
From now until April 2, Magnolia Pictures will donate 100% of the net proceeds from tickets sold to WHBPAC.
“TRIUMPHANT. Robertson deeply dissects the Band’s magic and dysfunction, reckoning with the grudges, tragedies and incomparable musical bond.”
– David Fear, Rolling Stone
“DEMANDS TO BE SEEN. The story of the rise and disintegration of the Band turns out to be as compelling as its spectacular music. Just watching and listening to the group tearing through their classic ‘Up on Cripple Creek’ near the documentary’s opening, alive with the pleasure of making great music with one another, is enough to joyously lift you out of your seat.”
– Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
