Who Can See Forever: A Portrait of Iron & Wine

Trailer Review

Orpheum · Saugerties

A SONIC WAVE WEEKLY screening.

Monday, March 25 7:00p

All the cool musicians are making tour movies, and Iron & Wine is no exception. Though the live show is drawn from a two night-stand at the historic Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw, North Carolina, the entirety of the film was shot over the course of three years. It seeks to clarify – or perhaps pay respect to – the alluring poetics of Iron & Wine’s frontman Sam Beam. Through interviews and casual, instinctive footage, Iron & Wine’s world becomes something we can experience wholly, just like Swifties and Beyoncé fans, through the magic of the movie screen. (dir. Josh Sliffe, U.S., 2023, 80 min)

“…. has a way of putting into focus just how much we’ve been overlooking Sam Beam’s genius.” – FLOOD
