You likely know Edwyn Collins as the British pop star who was part of the '80s outfit Orange Juice and rode up the charts with a solo career that included the 1994 hit single "A Girl Like You." What you may not know is how the singer came to the brink of death, nearly lost the memory of everything he accomplished, and overcame tremendous odds to find his way back to life and music. But Ed Lovelace and James Hall will share that story in the upcoming "The Possibilities Are Endless," which will premiere at the SXSW Film Festival.

You likely know Edwyn Collins as the British pop star who was part of the '80s outfit Orange Juice and rode up the charts with a solo career that included the 1994 hit single "A Girl Like You." What you may not know is how the singer came to the brink of death, nearly lost the memory of everything he accomplished, and overcame tremendous odds to find his way back to life and music. But Ed Lovelace and James Hall will share that story in the upcoming "The Possibilities Are Endless," which will premiere at the SXSW Film Festival.

After suffering a massive stroke, Collins woke up able to say only two phrases: "the possibilities are endless” and “Grace Maxwell,” the name of his wife, but could no longer remember anything else about his life or career. Narrated by Collins himself, the documentary recounts his amazing road to recovery, his re-discovery of music and so much more. And in this exclusive clip, we get an impactful sense of the loss Collins initially faced, from renown music star to having it all taken out of his hands in an instant.

"The Possibilities Are Endless" unspools for the first time at SXSW on Sunday, March 9th. Watch below.
