Up close and personal with iconic folk-rock duo Indigo Girls.

Adroitly leveraging astonishing access to the most likeable musicians you will ever witness, It’s Only Life After All is an inspiring and soothing portrait of folk-rock legends Indigo Girls. Amy Ray and Emily Saliers emerged in the eighties, becoming icons in both the music world and the queer community through their harmonious vocals, poetic lyricism, and socio-political activism. Director Alexandria Bombach crafts together an extensive archive of home video with endearing, self-aware and forthright interviews to form a rich tapestry covering their forty-year career. What is most striking is how Ray and Saliers emerge as individuals with distinct, very different personalities but with a shared artistic vision and political values.

“The rare confessional rockumentary that envelops you like a soft blanket.” (The Hollywood Reporter)

“It will delight longtime fans as well as those just discovering their legacy.” (Chicago Reader)
