Mike Downie will direct a documentary on the Tragically Hip but the brother of late frontman Gord Downie says he’s discovering that even he doesn’t have the full story.
The four-part series will chronicle the Hip’s rise from high school band to Canadian musical icons.
The untitled project will soon head into production and is set for release in the fall 2024 to mark the 40th anniversary of the band’s formation in Kingston.
Mike says going through his brother’s journals has made him feel closer to Gord , who died of brain cancer in 2017.
The documentary series will feature never-before-seen videos, recordings and photos.
