Tribeca 2011: THE SWELL SEASON Trailer
Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova seemingly came out of nowhere to briefly - very briefly - become household names after winning an Oscar for their work on John Carney's Once. It was a double edged sort of win, one that propelled them and their music to a fame they had only dreamed about while also forcing them to suddenly cope with that fame. The Swell Season is the story of the duo's life post-Oscar.
Slated to have its world premiere at Tribeca the first trailer has arrived online and can be found below.The world fell in love with Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova when their songwriting collaboration in the film Once culminated in a jubilant Oscar® win. But behind the scenes, where Glen and Mar's on-screen romance became reality, a grueling two-year world tour threatens to fracture their fated bond. Gorgeously filmed in black and white, this music-filled documentary is an intimate look at the exhilaration and turmoil created by both love and fame.
