The death of singer / songwriter Grant McLennan in May 2006 brought an end to one of Australia's greatest musical partnerships. McLennan and Robert Forster, the founding members of seminal Brisbane band The Go-Betweens, had been close friends and collaborators since their late teens some thirty years before.
Their body of work across both group and their solo albums has seen them recognised as Australia's own Lennon and McCartney and the legacy they and their fellow band members forged through the late 70's, 80's and into the 00's has become the stuff of legend.
'The Go-Betweens: Right Here' is a feature length documentary about the people behind this seminal band. It is a heartfelt story of discovery, uncovering the intensely passionate, creative and fraught relationships at the heart of this much loved and influential group. It is also the universal story of a great creative adventure that spanned three decades, through countless successes, failures, romances, break-ups, betrayals, triumphs and tragedies.
It is a compelling investigation into the exhilarating, unpredictable, and precarious lives of musicians, that reveals the true price paid by them to pursue their art.
