Expected to be in attendance: Director Gorman Bechard and Subject Sarah Shook, in conversation with Amelia Mason, from WBUR’s The ARTery

Director Gordon Bechard returns to IFFBoston with another heartfelt tribute to a musician’s art and process. Past Bechard films include WHO IS LYDIA LOVELESS? (IFFBoston 2016), EVERY EVERYTHING (IFFBoston 2014), and COLOR ME OBSESSED (IFFBoston 2011). His newest offers an intimate glimpse at songwriting and the balancing act between life and passion: vegan, bisexual, civil-rights activist Sarah Shook and her band of seasoned virtuosos, The Disarmers, head into the studio to record their new album and prove they have what it takes to shake up the country/western world.
