WHO CAN SEE FOREVER: A PORTRAIT OF IRON & WINE
WHO CAN SEE FOREVER is the first ever in-depth look into the life and music of Iron & Wine's Sam Beam. Initially conceived as a live document, WHO CAN SEE FOREVER grew into a deeper study of its enigmatic subject, as director Josh Sliffe spent more and more time on the road. Shot over the course of three years and using the traditional concert film as his jumping-off point, the film digs into the myth and ethos of Iron & Wine through interviews and unguarded behind-the-scenes footage that welcome the viewer into the center of Beam's universe. Shot during a particularly creative period wherein Iron & Wine released back-to-back Grammy-nominated records and were in the midst of a three-year touring cycle, the concert film is drawn from a two-night stand at the historic Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw, North Carolina, and features bassist Sebastian Steinberg (Fiona Apple, Soul Coughing), drummer Elizabeth Goodfellow (Allison Russell, Better Oblivion Community Center), cellist Teddy Rankin-Parker and keyboardist Eliza Hardy Jones (War on Drugs, Grace Potter). The shows were performed in –the round for a once-in-a-lifetime experience and pull from the entirety of Iron & Wine's 20-plus-year career. WHO CAN SEE FOREVER manages to serve as part concert film, part music documentary and part meditative examination, as it captures one of independent music's most prolific singer-songwriters. DIR/PROD Josh Sliffe; PROD Howard Greynolds, Austin Simmons. U.S., 2023, color, 80 min. NOT RATED
