Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me

Nom­i­nat­ed for 2015 Acad­e­my Award for Best Orig­i­nal Song; Win­ner of Out­stand­ing Biog­ra­phy at 2014 Edmon­ton Inter­na­tion­al Film Fes­ti­val

Glen Camp­bell: I’ll Be Me (direct­ed by James Keach) fol­lows Glen and his fam­i­ly as they togeth­er fight the biggest bat­tle of his life. After his dev­as­tat­ing diag­no­sis of Alzheimer’s dis­ease in 2011, Glen and his wife Kim decid­ed to go pub­lic with their pri­vate tragedy — the first time a major Amer­i­can celebri­ty would share this kind of expe­ri­ence with the world. Glen had been told to hang up his gui­tar and pre­pare for the inevitable; instead, he and his fam­i­ly set out on a five-week “Good­bye Tour” across Amer­i­ca — some­thing that turned into an emo­tion­al and tri­umphant 151-show nation­wide tour de force spanning18 months. The film doc­u­ments the family’s amaz­ing jour­ney as they attempt to nav­i­gate the wild­ly unpre­dictable nature of Glen’s pro­gress­ing dis­ease using love, laugh­ter and music as their med­i­cine of choice.
