Johnny Cash Documentary Night at the Clinton Library October 14, 2009


Johnny Cash Documentary Night at the Clinton Library October 14, 2009

A free screening of Johnny Cash: The Man, His World, His Music by Bob Elfstrom will be shown at the Henry Carter Hull Library on Wednesday, October 14, 2009 at 6:30 pm. This free event is a collaboration with Point Of View (POV), PBS’ award-winning nonfiction film series. Registration is not required.

Johnny Cash: The Man, His World, His Music comes closer than any film has – or likely ever will – to getting inside the troubled and faithful man who “walked the line” in music and life. Shot by Elfstrom in 1969, Johnny Cash is captured at his peak, the first of many in a looming roller-coaster career. Fresh on the heels of his Folsom Prison album, Cash reveals the dark intensity and raw talent that made him a country music star and cultural icon. Director Robert Elfstrom got closer than any other filmmaker to Cash, who is seen performing with his new bride June Carter Cash, in a rare duet with Bob Dylan, and behind the scenes with friends, family and aspiring young musicians. Johnny Cash: The Man, His World, His Music paints an unforgettable portrait that endures beyond the singer's 2003 death.
