Where Does a Body End?
Director: Marco Porsia Run Time: 121 min. Format: DCP Release Year: 2019
An intimate portrait of the band Swans, told with unprecedented access to the band as well as never before seen archive material and interviews documenting their 35-year career.
From their roots as a brutal, confrontational post-punk band that emerged from the 1980’s era NYC to their ill-fated bid at mainstream success in the ’90’s indie-rock gold rush through breakups and chaos (on and off stage) to their odds-defying current status as one of the most accomplished and ambitious bands in the world.
Director Marco Porsia embedded himself in the band’s tight inner circle for five years, filming rehearsals, songwriting sessions, the grind of life on the road, petty arguments and transcendent performances, including their final shows under the last long standing iteration of the band.
