Come Worry With Us!2013

  • 3.0
What happens to female artists once they become mothers? A heartfelt exploration of how motherhood affects and impinges on one's creative life, COME WORRY WITH US! follows violinist Jessica Moss and singer/guitarist Efrim Menuck, members of internationally acclaimed Montreal-based band Thee Silver Mt. Zion Orchestra (Menuck is also a founding member of Godspeed You! Black Emperor), as the couple decides to bring their young son on tour and attempts to balance family and career. Moss and Menuck, and their band, are one of a growing number of musicians who have accepted an infant (Efrim and Jessica's son, Ezra) into their touring life. Making a living has never been more difficult for musicians: a downloading generation has shattered the economics of the music industry, and constant touring has become synonymous with economic survival. Touring with children is both costly and complicated, yet Jessica and Efrim, and fellow band mates Sophie Trudeau, Thierry Amar and Dave Payant, are determined to combine family life and being on the road with the band's deep political commitment. As SMZ perseveres in making art and an honest living, we follow Jessica as she discovers the parallel path that mothers can find themselves on while attempting to pursue artistic endeavors alongside their peers. With footage of Thee Silver Mount Zion performing live on their North American tour, COME WORRY WITH US! depicts the increasingly complex personal choices musicians, and especially women, have to make in times where constant touring has become synonymous with economic survival.
