The Swell Season

USA/English (91 mins)

Western Canada Premiere! In 2008, Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová captivated audiences and earned two Academy Awards® for their musical collaboration in the film Once, a box office hit that grew their popularity and fan base in North America and throughout the world. As their fictional romance blurred with reality, they fell in love, recorded an album, and embarked on a world tour.

Fueled by two years of exhilaration, performance, and psychological turmoil, The Swell Season is much more than a music documentary. It is a volatile and intimate portrait of a romance that fractures in the face of life on the road and personal tragedy. As Glen and Markéta's relationship unhinges, music prevails as their enduring connection.

With incredible performances and an intimate seat on Glen and Markéta's tour, The Swell Season will resonate with film fans and music fans alike. Filmed – breathtakingly - in glorious black & white.
