IT’S ONLY LIFE AFTER ALL
Musicians Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have left an indelible mark on folk and rock music since blasting onto the scene as the Indigo Girls in the 1980s. Known for their stirring harmonies and socially conscious lyrics, they’ve empowered generations of dedicated fans with their heartfelt songs and righteous commitment to political and environmental causes. In Alexandria Bombach’s revelatory documentary portrait, Ray and Saliers look back on their decades-long artistic partnership, focusing both on their triumphs and on the roadblocks they’ve faced along the way. Unashamed to be themselves and to speak about the issues close to their hearts, the women were often subject to sexist and homophobic digs by critics and comedians. Yet through it all, Ray and Saliers remained kind, creatively adventurous, and passionate. Both a treat for diehard fans and an enlightening primer for the uninitiated, IT’S ONLY LIFE AFTER ALL provides a much-deserved moment in the sun for one of music’s most vital duos.
