The Swell Season picks up on the true-to-life romance of music artists Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova (of Once fame), which depicts their growing and sinking relationship during a two year tour. Directed by Nick August-Perna, Chris Dapkins, and Carlo Mirabella-Davis. The synopsis can be read as follows (via Tribeca):

“The world fell in love with Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova when their songwriting collaboration in the film Once culminated in a jubilant Oscar® win. But behind the scenes, where Glen and Mar’s on-screen romance became reality, a grueling two-year world tour threatens to fracture their fated bond. Gorgeously filmed in black and white, this music-filled documentary is an intimate look at the exhilaration and turmoil created by both love and fame.”
