Inspired by Robbie Robertson’s 2016 memoir, “Testimony,” Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and The Band tells the story of Robertson, one of Canada’s musical legends, who was both lead guitarist and primary songwriter for The Band which had previously served as Bob Dylan’s backup band and before that as the band behind another legendary musician-composer Ronnie Hawkins. Featuring rare archival footage knitted carefully together by interviews with friends and collaborators including Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Taj Mahal, Peter Gabriel, David Geffen and Ronnie Hawkins. Executive produced by Martin Scorsese, Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, the documentary was directed by Daniel Roher and was selected to open the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.
