A Bright Light – Karen and the Process (dir. Emmanuelle Antille, Switzerland)
In the footsteps of cult singer Karen Dalton, A Bright Light – Karen and the Process takes us on a frantic and mesmerizing road trip across the United States. In search of one of the sixties’ most astonishing voices – adulated by her peers, but unknown to the general public – A Bright Light is a documentary made of music and art that questions the creative process.
On a wild and enchanted journey from Colorado to Woodstock, three women search for this once upon a time muse. Along the way, they encounter those who knew her as well as those whom she still haunts and influences today. The film draws the portrait of this exceptional artist, furiously free, who refused the system and its compromises. Through this iconic figure, we follow the quest of a certain freedom of life and expression and an independence for better or worse.
