Bechard’s “Every Everything…” continues his documentaries of MN musicians. This one featured the subject almost exclusively including band footage, which is a departure from the other docs. At face value people may view this film finding a gentler, kinder version of the Grant Hart than the one we knew after Husker Du disintegrated. However, it delves deeper than that. Grant the artist is revealed; his opinions of art were quite interesting as were his influences such as William S. Burroughs and Patti Smith amongst others. Time has seemed to heal a lot of the dramatic Husker Du wounds. Grant opens up quite wide revealing fatherhood, and the loss of his mother and home. Bechard has succeeded in a place he hadn’t before, really helping the audience to understand the artist. After all isn’t that what all artists want-understanding?
This Film is showing Wednesday, November 13th at Landmark Center. As part of the Sound Unseen Film Festival
