Co-presented with the Sundance Institute
In May 2011 family and friends gathered together to pay tribute to the late singer-songwriter Kate McGarrigle. Filmed at the Town Hall Theater in New York City by Lian Lunson, this documentary is partly a concert and partly an intimate look at family and friends coming to terms with the loss of a loved one. Performers include Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright, Anna McGarrigle, Jane McGarrigle, Emmylou Harris, Teddy Thompson, Norah Jones, Sloan Wainwright, Joel Zifkin, and others. (2012, Dir. Lian Lunson, 107 min.)
A short courtyard performance by Kate McGarrigle’s son, Rufus Wainwright, will follow the screening. Hammer Members and screening attendees receive priority access to the short courtyard performance.
