Rock N Roll Mamas is a work-in-progress feature-length documentary about three indie rockers/mamas who strive to follow their creative dreams while also providing for their families in an alternative lifestyle that is often judged harshly by our society.
Over the course of four years, award-winning filmmaker – and Professional Video & Tape customer – Jackie Weissman followed Kristin Hersh of Throwing Muses, Zia McCabe of The Dandy Warhols, and hip hop artist, Ms. Su´ad. The film takes us into their daily lives as they struggle with economic instability, the rigors of touring with children, and “normalizing” home life, all interwoven with the blood, sweat, and personal fulfillment they find in performing.
From the outside it seems like it should be easy, merging motherhood with making music; but there is always a sacrifice. The film is a reminder to us all that there is no one way to parent.
