Featuring a Post-Film Q&A with Glenn Kotche | Please Read Our COVID Policy Below* 

Sam Jones' insightful documentary chronicles the tumultuous recording and release of Wilco's 2002 album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, which became an instant classic despite being rejected by its initial label.

After the screening of I AM TRYING TO BREAK YOUR HEART, longtime Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche will be joined by Pitchfork Features Editor Jillian Mapes for a conversation about the film, Glenn’s vantage on the band during that era, and where his and Wilco’s paths have continued.
