"I feel like Morrison just kind of knew at this point that this was the last act, and there was this deep fatigue for all things in this world that seemed to prevent him from doing the one thing that I think saved his sanity before — writing, writing poetry, and even maybe prevented him from loving the way he wanted. So along with that is the question of how this affected his relationships, most specifically of course, with his long-term girlfriend. This might sound a little mundane, but it’s some of these smaller, intimate moments that we really want to focus on, moments I think are missing in popular culture depictions of Morrison." writes Sundance alum Robert Saitzyk about his fictional film that attempts to explore the psychology of who Jim Morrison might have been at the end of his life.

Pamela & James
"His girlfriend, Pam Courson, encourages him to forget music and concentrate on his poetry. Jim’s already self-published two notebooks of his poems, both dedicated to her.”
