More on the film here, via official release:
A natural project for a band that has built a compelling and artful visual world alongside their award-winning, chart-topping catalogue, July Talk: Love Lives Here asks a fundamental question: What is essential in a time of upheaval? Farhat documented the months of panic and epiphany in the leadup to July Talk’s lauded Drive-In Shows of 2020, and with the help of unreleased archival footage spanning a decade, follows the thoughtful group of artists to a crossroads of identity and circumstance.
July Talk: Love Lives Here balances the raw spontaneity of July Talk’s live performances with the intimacy of closed-circuit interactions – phone conversations and backstage moments that go unseen by fans – against a backdrop of ten years of band history.
Premiere: May 3, 8:30pm, Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema
Encore Screening: May 5, 9:00pm, TIFF Bell Lightbox
