Atlanta-based singer-songwriters Amy Ray and Emily Saliers began performing together in high school before becoming the acclaimed folk-rock duo Indigo Girls. After playing local clubs for years, Indigo Girls and their distinctive vocal harmonies slipped into mainstream consciousness in the late 1980s and early ’90s with a Grammy win and hit song “Closer to Fine.” Over the years, Ray and Saliers have maintained musical careers on their own terms with their resolutely political lyrics and commitment to LGBTQ rights and visibility. Since 1993, they have also found purpose in partnering with Indigenous activist Winona LaDuke in the fight for environmental justice.
Intimate, fun, and filled with great music, It’s Only Life After All allows Ray and Saliers to look back on their musical partnership, personal demons, and careers spanning three decades with self-criticism, humor, and honesty. Weaving Ray’s personal audiotape and camcorder footage with insightful interviews and archival footage, director Alexandria Bombach returns to Sundance (On Her Shoulders, 2018 Sundance Film Festival) with a film about truly independent artists that will delight both longtime fans and those ready to discover the Indigo Girls.
This event is sponsored by The Tower Theater and supported in part by the Deschutes County Arts & Culture Program, The Oregon Health Authority and Oregon Arts Build Communities.
