METRIC: DREAMS SO REAL
In 2016, Canadian rock group Metric traversed the globe on the most significant tour of their career. This feature-length concert documentary captures their last live show in Vancouver, British Columbia, the culmination of a year's work on the part of the band and their dedicated crew. Their performance was recorded by 26 cameras and finished in 4K (aka ultra HD), with audio mixed by multi-Grammy winner David Bottrill. Featuring fan favorites from more than five albums, including indelible hits "Breathing Underwater," "Gold Guns Girls" and "Help I'm Alive," and plenty of arena-worthy moments, DREAMS SO REAL is a stunning recreation of an incredibly special evening.
