Gibson made the first recordings for this film on the eve of the 45th presidential inauguration, in January 2017, as a portrait of two of the most important living poets from the United States: CAConrad and Eileen Myles.
During the remainder of that year she continued to shoot in America and Western Europe, engaging with themes such as mass migration across the Mediterranean, the Grenfell Tower fire in London, and the consequences of political unrest and war. I Hope I’m Loud When I’m Dead reflects on the future of a changing world. The film, alternately raw and restrained, is written as a declaration of love to Gibson’s daughter.
