Its difficult to watch Remember Where You Are and not draw immediate comparisons to John Carney’s films Begin Again and Once. All three films fixate on the potential to create outside the music industry, music’s ability to connect people, and the intimacy of creating and sharing one great and sincere song.
The documentary follows Catherine Feeny and Sebastian Rogers, two engaged musicians who both have struggled in the music industry and were dropped by their record labels. To reclaim a connection with their fanbase they decide to go on a two-month 15,000 mile “living room tour” across the United States. Relying almost exclusively on the internet, the musicians connect with fans and strangers and perform for small intimate events in living rooms across the country.
If you believe in the healing power of music, this is the film for you.
