Director ALEXANDRIA BOMBACH (US 2023) 123 min
“Indigo Girls saved my life” is a common refrain heard from fans of the folk-rock duo, Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, who’ve been making music together for 40 years. Whether you’re a long-time devotee or discovering them for the first time, this intimate portrait will not disappoint. It details their outspoken support of LGBTQ+ rights and the discrimination they faced in the music industry as two of the few openly queer public figures in the early ’90s. Skillfully weaving a treasure trove of personal home movies and recordings together with introspective interviews and a rocking soundtrack, director Alexandria Bombach (On Her Shoulders, DocLands 2018) delivers a timely and relevant look at the lives of two enduring icons.
