In two weeks, Katy Grannan’s first feature film, The Nine will be screening at the Mill Valley Film Festival.
Katy Grannan’s intimate documentary explores the lives of those who struggle with their past tragedies and current addictions. The filmmaker’s delicate but deepening focus on the mystery of Kiki—whose clinging, childlike world-view belongs to someone a fraction of her actual age—looks for answers in those around her, who still dream of reuniting with their children, working a garden, running a mud wrestling club. Despite their ravaged lives, their songs burst out with a terrible and unflinching beauty.
