You Sing Loud, I Sing Louder
Feature debut directed by Emma Westenberg
After a drastic incident in his daughter’s life, a father picks her up and takes the young woman on an impromptu road trip. We learn that the two haven’t seen each other for a while and that their relationship is very strained. As they go about their journey we learn about their past and they run into strangers along the way that bring the two closer together again. A story about healing through connection.
You Sing Loud, I Sing Louder debuted at SXSW 2023. Director Emma Westenberg participated in a ‘Featured Session’ together with Troy Kotsur to discuss Daddy Issues in Film.
Deadline: “Making a movie with your own child is perilous enough… It’s even more of a risk when your private life has been splashed all over the tabloids, and the facts of that controversy are a key part of that movie. But whether or not Ewan McGregor and his daughter Clara saw the film as a chance for family therapy, Emma Westenberg’s affecting, slow-burn debut leaves all that kind of real-world baggage firmly at the door.”
