BILL COORS: THE WILL TO LIVE – Interview with Filmmaker Kerry David

“The only person in the world you cannot cheat, you cannot trick, you cannot deceive, you cannot lie to is yourself. So be yourself, do your thing, and you’ll get there.”Bill Coors

Here is our interview with documentary filmmaker Kerry David.

Bill Coors is known for being a titan of the brewing industry but what is less known is the heroic personal journey he undertook to discover a cure to the depression and anxiety that had plagued his family for generations. Bill's journey is told parallel to several young internet influencers – although 100 years divides them – their stories are eerily similar as is their fierce 'Will to Live.  


Filmmaker Kerry David has given us much more than a biography of a great person. The structure of the documentary, the moving interviews and the in-depth look into Bill Coors life has given us a profound examination into the true power of love.  A special documentary that will make you reevaluate your own choices in life.  Bill Coors is a fascinating figure who's legacy should not just be remembered but replicated and beloved.  I chatted with filmmaker Kerry David about the unique choice of structure and pacing of her documentary, how the Coors family opened up to her, the importance of telling Bill's story to all generations of people, the power of love and so much more.  Easily one of the best films of the year!    

Interview with filmmaker Kerry David:

It is rare for me to be truly moved by a film, but I can't stop saying Bill's powerful 11th commandment.  

Thou Shalt Love Thyself.  

Kerry was such an amazing filmmaker to chat with I couldn't help but ask her for more information about her next documentary.  

Currently in production Kerry is hard at work in completing –  Breaking Their Silence: Women on the Frontline of the Poaching War.  In a world grappling with #MeToo and so much division between the sexes Kerry travels to the toughest of locations to tell the most harrowing stories.  I can't wait to witness her next documentary.  In the mean time don't miss out on seeing Bill Coors life story unfold in thi wonderful documentary, Bill Coors: The Will To Live.
