CBC Sets Anne Murray Documentary Premiere


CBC is set to debut Anne Murray: Full Circle next month to celebrate the career of the eponymous Canadian singer.

The documentary, produced by Network Entertainment in association with Universal Music Canada, includes never-before-seen footage from Murray’s personal archives and interviews with fellow stars such as Shania Twain, k.d. lang, Bonnie Raitt, Jann Arden, Kenny Loggins and Gordon Lightfoot.

The film will trace her journey as a trailblazing Canadian artist in the ’60s and ’70s to becoming a global superstar who has sold more than 55 million albums. Morgan Elliott and Adrian Buitenhuis direct.

Anne Murray: Full Circle is slated to premiere as a special one-night cinema event at select Cineplex theaters across Canada on December 2, followed by a CBC TV and CBC Gem launch on December 17.

“It’s a surreal and sometimes unnerving feeling to watch your life replay itself on screen, but I am honored to have my story told by such a creative team,” Murray said. “Seeing the old footage and hearing the words of my dear friends and collaborators takes me back to both the good times and the not-so-good ones. Throughout my career, the loyalty and support of my fans have been a constant. They were there with me every step of the way, even when others were not. I hope they enjoy this trip down memory lane.”
