No One Said It Would Be Easy - A Film About Cloud Cult
is a feature-length film that was created by John Burgess and Scott West and released in 2009. It includes candid interviews and footage gathered over the previous ten years of the band in the studio and on the road.
Offering an annotated history behind each of Cloud Cult's releases, the film deconstructs the back story, including the recruitment and inclusion of band members, as well as the tragic loss of singer/songwriter Craig Minowa and wife and visual artist Connie Minewa's son, Kaidin - the impetus for much of the early music and ongoing inspiration surrounding Cloud Cult's drive and mission to exude a message of hope and transformative love through performance and art. Echoing the emotional catharsis required of a Cloud Cult performance, the film ebbs and flows, is filled with soaring highs and crushing lows, and is about what happens when a group of people commits to something much larger than themselves.
