The National Music Centre (NMC) is pleased to present the Calgary premiere of I’m Going to Break Your Heart, a new documentary by Amy Green and JUNO Award-winners Raine Maida (Our Lady Peace) and Chantal Kreviazuk, followed by an intimate performance and conversation with the two renowned singer-songwriters. The performance will launch the 2019 season of NMC’s signature series, NMC Presents.
“NMC Presents is an opportunity to partner with outstanding Canadian artists that music fans know and love. We’re so pleased to kick off our series with one of Canada’s most dynamic songwriting duos,” said Adam Fox, NMC’s Director of Programs. “With this special presentation, we’re combining film and music as we premiere Chantal and Raine’s new documentary as an added treat for fans.”
The romance between Maida and Kreviazuk made headlines as Canada’s beautiful young rock royalty, but nearly two decades and three children later, the pair face challenges— like most couples—with their relationship. I’m Going to Break Your Heart captures the raw and wrenching journey the duo took to find their way back to each other, while also chronicling their first musical collaboration together as Moon vs. Sun.
Filmed on France’s isolated but romantic Saint Pierre and Miquelon islands in the dead of winter, the documentary immerses viewers into their relationship through music that exposes long-standing wounds and unresolved heartache. Ultimately, I’m Going to Break Your Heart is the true story of rediscovering romance through song.
I’m Going to Break Your Heart is a multi-platform experience, incorporating the film, a new forthcoming album of the same name, a book, international tour and podcast called The Together Space, based on couples who also have creative relationships.
“This film captures us creating our first album together, which was one of our most challenging endeavors to date,” said Chantal Kreviazuk. “Creating this film and the forthcoming album was part therapeutic process, part creative journey that left me feeling incredibly inspired both musically and personally.”
“Music is a form of catharsis for us,” said Raine Maida. “It has always been the best way for us to communicate as collaborators, and as partners. This time, music was the outlet to help mend our relationship while also celebrating our creative process.”
See the duo as they share the trials and tribulations of their love story live and on screen. Tickets to NMC Presents: I’m Going to Break Your Heart—Chantal Kreviazuk & Raine Maida go on sale on January 10 and cost $65. Please go here to purchase your tickets in advance.
