bee gees documentary

Saturday, December 12 is the premiere of the all new HBO Documentary Film “THE BEE GEES: HOW CAN YOU MEND A BROKEN HEART”


The Bee Gees HBO documentary is directed by acclaimed filmmaker Frank Marshall (“Seabiscuit”, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”), chronicles the triumphs and hurdles of brothers Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb, otherwise known as the Bee Gees.

The feature debuts Saturday, December 12 at 8PM ET/PT on HBO and will be available to stream on HBO Max.

The iconic trio, who found early fame in the 1960s, went on to write over 1,000 songs. Including twenty #1 hits throughout their storied career. This film follows the Bee Gee’s meteoric rise as they rode the highs of fame and fortune, negotiated the vagaries of the ever-shifting music business and navigated the complexities of working so intimately alongside family.

THE BEE GEES: HOW CAN YOU MEND A BROKEN HEART was an official selection of the 2020 Telluride Film Festival. Frank Marshall also produces alongside Nigel Sinclair and Jeanne Elfant Festa, part of the award-winning team behind HBO’s “The Apollo” and “George Harrison: Living in the Material World,” and Mark Monroe. The film is a Polygram Entertainment presentation of a Kennedy/Marshall and White Horse Pictures production in association with Diamond Docs.

THE BEE GEES: HOW CAN YOU MEND A BROKEN HEART is an intimate exploration of the Gibb story, featuring revealing interviews with oldest brother Barry and archival interviews with the late twin brothers Robin and Maurice. The film features a wealth of never-before-seen archival footage of recording sessions, concert performances, television appearances and home videos, as well as interviews with musicians Eric Clapton, Noel Gallagher, Nick Jonas, Chris Martin, Justin Timberlake, music producer Mark Ronson, singer Lulu, record company executive Bill Oakes, among others.

The story takes us from their childhood in 1950s Australia to the artistic crucible of 1960s London and to the sundrenched coast of Miami, Florida. The band created a distinct sound with their three-part harmonizing, their melodic voices forming a new kind of instrument.
 
THE BEE GEES: HOW CAN YOU MEND A BROKEN HEART is a vibrant study of the Gibb’s unique professional longevity as their singing and songwriting transcended more than five decades of changing tastes and styles. Beyond the awards and accolades, the film reveals the loving yet complicated relationships between three brothers, whose music spans generations and stands firmly at the pinnacle of pop history. It is a story of a singular band and their music. But also a poignant portrait of brotherhood tested by fame and loss but marked by enduring devotion.
