2016 | DIRECTOR. GORD DOWNIE | REVIEW BY GLENN COCHRANE.
Downie was the front man of the influential band The Tragically Hip, as well as being a political activist, environmentalist and philanthropist. He passed away from an aggressive brain tumour and before he took his final mortal bow, he solidified his legacy with three incredible fetes. The first was a farewell tour of Canada, which was documented in the film Long Time Running (on Netflix), whereby he faced his audience, connected with every last person in each stadium, and said goodbye. It is one of the most emotionally charged concert experiences you will ever encounter. The second fete was The Secret Path, a musical project encompassing a full-length album, graphic novel and film, which tell an unforgettable story. And the third was a final solo album released posthumously (each song being dedicated to important people in his life).
