It’s Only Life After All
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12 AT 7:00PM
Tickets Available DAY OF at Box Office
Opening Night of the 30th Annual Lesbian Looks Film Series!
Blending 40 years of home movies, raw film archive, and intimate present-day verité, the film offers a timely look into the obstacles, activism, and life lessons of two queer friends who never expected to make it big.
“A revealing exploration and much-anticipated love letter to the massively beloved folk-rock duo Indigo Girls. From their serendipitous meeting at Emory University, where their innate musical styles collided, to their hardscrabble days as a popular bar band, to their explosion on the worldwide music scene with their eponymous album — this is the deep dive into their story that their intensely devoted fans have craved.
In Alexandria Bombach’s sensitively helmed ode, Emily Saliers and Amy Ray push aside their reluctance and unveil the stories behind the band’s decades of history and 15 million records sold, including their personal struggles, incessant dismissal by music critics, and devotion to LGBTQ+ and Indigenous rights. Through never-before-seen archival footage and frank conversation, It’s Only Life After All beautifully demonstrates how Ray and Saliers have persevered over 35 years while remaining authentic to their roots as artists, activists, and, above all else, friends.” – Liza Domnitz, Tribeca Film Festival (Dir. by Alexandria Bombach, 2023, USA, 123 mins., NR)
This is a rental of The Loft Cinema, presented by Lesbian Looks.
