"Where Does a Body End? is an intimate portrait of SWANS. From their roots as a confrontation post-punk band that emerged in the early 80's-era NYC that also gave us Sonic Youth and Madonna, to their odds-defying current status as one of the world's most accomplished and ambitious bands, and one whose concerts are more like ecstatic rituals of sound than trips through the back-catalogue of their most popular songs. Singer, songwriter and SWANS founder, Michael Gira's biography (teenage runaway, art school provocateur, record producer and influences (Jimmy Swaggart casts a shadow as large as The Germs and Suicide) are inseparable from the story of the band and their music. With unfettered access to hundreds of hours of Gira/SWANS archive, the film is not only a musical history, but also a time-capsule, tour diary, concert film, and mostly the story of an uncompromisingly creative life--frequently difficult and spanning decades without a safety net"--Container.
