You can stream Sam Jones’ 2002 documentary about Wilco making Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, which is called I Am Trying to Break Your Heart, for free this week.
“Throughout the film, Jones tempers the backstage dramas and unfathomable corporate shenanigans with inspired live performances, as frontman Jeff Tweedy and company perform songs from Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and previous Wilco albums,” a description for the film explains. “Shot in luminous black and white, I Am Trying to Break Your Heart is a riveting portrait of a band making the best music of its career.”
The movie is streaming for free as part of Oh You Pretty Things’ “Free Movie of the Week” series, which they’re hosting throughout the COVVID-19 crisis with Film First. The documentary is available through until May 12th, and they’ll be accepting donations for My Block, My Hood, My City.
