Filmmaker Daniel Roher focuses on The Band’s founder Robbie Robertson, who started opening up in his

candid book Testimony: A Memoir. Robertson gives an emotional account of The Band’s history, artistry and

the tensions that divided fellow members Garth Hudson and the now-deceased Levon Helms, Rick Danko

and Richard Manuel. We hear other testimonies from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Van Morrison and

Scorsese (also the film’s executive producer) who decode the magic of The Band’s haunting songs such as

“The Weight,” “Up on Cripple Creek” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.”

*There will be a wonderful pre-screening live tribute to The Band, featuring Pete Mancini, Cassandra

House, Dave March and Travis McKeveny, four acclaimed local original artists who were all inspired

by this legendary band starting at 6PM, followed by the screening at 7:15PM.
