ONCE WERE BROTHERS: ROBBIE ROBERTSON AND THE BAND

MARCH 6 – 12
ONCE WERE BROTHERS: ROBBIE ROBERTSON AND THE BAND

Inspired by Robertson’s 2017 bestselling memoir Testimony, ONCE WERE BROTHERS: ROBBIE ROBERTSON AND THE BAND is a confessional, cautionary, and sometimes humorous tale of Robertson’s young life and the creation of one of the most enduring groups in the history of popular music. The film blends rare archival footage and interviews with many of Robertson’s friends and collaborators, including Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Scorsese, Taj Mahal, Peter Gabriel, David Geffen and Ronnie Hawkins, among others.
Dir: Daniel Roher / 2020 / US / 102 min

“’Brothers’ demands to be seen.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“For fans of the Band, this film will inspire tears of sorrow and joy, if not rage. Now more than ever, their music stirs emotions with a profundity that feels religious, but without the stench of sanctimony.” – Dave Segal, The Stranger

“It’s no surprise to anyone who’s met him or even listened thoughtfully to some of the greatest rock songs ever written that Robertson would be such an articulate and ingratiating tour guide through all this glorious and eventually tortured history.” – Chris Willman, Variety
