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. After backing Bob Dylan on his infamous electric tours, in 1968 The Band recorded its seminal debut album, Music From Big Pink, followed a year later with their self-titled album which featured the legendary songs “The Weight,” “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” and “Up on Cripple Creek.”  Once Were Brothers features rare archival footage, photography, iconic songs, and interviews with many of Robertson’s friends and collaborators, including Martin Scorsese, Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Peter Gabriel, Taj Mahal, Dominique Robertson, and Ronnie Hawkins.  2020 / 100 min
