Series: Sonic Cinema

Sonic Cinema presents PARADISE IS THERE, A MEMOIR BY NATALIE MERCHANT.

Singer/songwriter Natalie Merchant released “Tigerlily” 20 years ago.  The album went on to sell 5 million copies and touched countless numbers of fans.  Now she has re-recorded the album and uses the opportunity to tell her story, the story behind the songs and the impact it has had on her audience.

This film is a personal account of the beloved singer’s journey. Told through her voice and the voices of her fans, it illustrates how powerfully the songs from “Tigerlily”, — ‘Carnival,’ ‘River,’ Wonder,’ ‘The Letter,’ and more — have impacted her audience.

With this film we get to know Merchant in a new way and appreciate the humanity of the woman that is reflected in her songs. Filled with archival footage from her early days fronting the seminal alternative rock band 10,000 Maniacs, live performances and interviews with musicians, friends and fans.
