About the Film:

May It Last screens for one night only across the nation! Judd Apatow—yes, the guy who made Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin—and Michael Bonfiglio followed acclaimed North Carolina folk-rock band The Avett Brothers, as they recorded their 2016 hit album True Sadness. Filmed over more than two years, May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers is a deeply intimate, revealing look at the Grammy Award-nominated North Carolina band fronted by Seth and Scott Avett. It charts the Avett Brothers' decade-and-a-half rise, while chronicling their 2016 collaboration with famed producer Rick Rubin on True Sadness. Using the recording process as a backdrop, the film depicts a lifelong creative partnership put to the test as band members undergo marriage, divorce, parenthood, illness, and the challenges of the music business. More than just a concert documentary, the film is a meditation on family, love, and the passage of time.
