Who Can See Forever: A Portrait of Iron & Wine

This event has passed

Sam Beam is a singer-songwriter who has been creating music as Iron & Wine for over a decade. Through the course of seven albums, numerous EPs and singles, and the initial volumes of an Archive Series – Iron & Wine has captured the emotion and imagination of listeners with distinctly cinematic songs. Shot at the Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw, North Carolina, the soundtrack features nineteen songs record live.

Initially intended as a live concert release, the film evolved into a visual portrait capturing Beam during a creative outburst that earned him four Grammy nominations in four years. Like his music, the film touches on universally personal themes as Beam tackles managing his personal and professional life as an artist.

La Chimera
