“MAY IT LAST isn’t just a portrait of a band, it’s a scrapbook of a family, one that’s thorough, funny, and full of larger-than- life stories.” — Michael Roffman, CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
“Not just a making-of doc but also a look at the importance of having folks' backs during tough times and how to turn such ill-dealt hands into art.” — David Fear, ROLLING STONE
Synopsis: From longtime fans Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio and filmed with extraordinary access over the course of more than two years, MAY IT LAST is an intimate portrait of the acclaimed North Carolina band The Avett Brothers, charting their decade-and- a-half rise, while chronicling their present-day collaboration with famed producer Rick Rubin on the multi-Grammy-nominated album “True Sadness,” which was released on American Recordings/Republic Records. With the recording process as a backdrop, the film depicts a lifelong bond and unique creative partnership, as band members undergo marriage, divorce, parenthood, illness, and the challenges of the music business. More than just a music documentary, MAY IT LAST is a meditation on family, love, and the passage of time. An Apatow Production in association with RadicalMedia and HBO Documentary Films.
