a-ha: the movie

Get ready for a-ha: The Movie.

Arriving on UK screens on 27 May 2022, the feature-length documentary features new interviews with the band and previously unreleased behind-the-scenes footage.

Thomas Robsahm and Aslaug Holm’s candid and up-close look at a-ha opens following its world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival and will coincide with four UK live tour dates by the band.

Before a nationwide release across the UK and Ireland in May, a-ha: The Movie will preview at Dublin International Film Festival on 3 March and Glasgow Film Festival on 4 and 5 March, where co-director Thomas Robsahm will be live in conversation.

The film, the press releases states, “closely portrays the challenging creative and personal dynamics of a group of three strong individuals. This is a story of great music, big ambitions, broken friendship – and maybe forgiveness”

The film is directed by Thomas Robsahm (The Greatest Thing, Modern Slavery, Punx), also well known as a film producer, most recently releasing Joachim Trier’s acclaimed Cannes competition hit and BAFTA/Oscar nominee, The Worst Person in the World; and the award-winning and influential documentary filmmaker Aslaug Holm (Generation Utøya).
