"One of the most insightful music documentaries in recent memory."—Piet Levy, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"A testament to the genius of Clark, and the passion of Saviano. Together, they tell quite a story."—Will Schube, Flood Magazine

Without Getting Killed or Caught follows Guy Clark, Susanna Clark, and Townes Van Zandt as they rise from obscurity to reverence: Guy, the Pancho to Van Zandt’s Lefty, struggling to establish himself as the Dylan Thomas of American music, while Susanna pens hit songs and paints album covers for top artists, and Townes spirals in self-destruction after writing some of Americana music’s most enduring and influential ballads. Based on the diaries of Susanna Clark and director Tamara Saviano’s 2016 book Without Getting Killed or Caught: The Life and Music of Guy Clark, the film tells the saga from Susanna’s point of view, with Academy Award-winner Sissy Spacek as Susanna, reading pained remembrances and beautiful memories from her diaries and also features poignant reflections from Clark’s closest friends and musical allies: Rodney Crowell, Steve Earle, Vince Gill, Verlon Thompson, and more.
