Inner Rush

Inner Rush

This short film pays tribute to Rush, one of rock's most successful and popular bands of all-time. 'Humility' and 'rock and roll' don't usually appear together, yet the members of Rush (Geddy Lee, Neil Peart, and Alex Lifeson), reflect here on a career of making music built on craft, heart and an uncompromised commitment to push the limits - to always 'get better'.

Produced by the National Film Board of Canada in co-operation with the National Arts Centre and the Governor General's Performing Arts Awards Foundation on the occasion of the 2012 Governor General's Performing Arts Awards.

    I love this film. Rush has been the best of the best since its inception. Time-less. I remember listening to them 35 years ago and seeing them live. Awesome.

    Great juxtapositions Batman! Rush is timeless as the music transcends yet another generation. Sounds like there's more brewing upstairs... anxiously looking forward to the next incarnation. A place we've never been before?
