The life of Johnny Cash is being explored in a new documentary.
The worlds of film and television are colliding with music more than ever it seems. Hollywood biopics like “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Rocketman” are delivering at the box office, while MGM Television is working on a dramatization of Billy Joel’s songs.
Enter YouTube Originals. The platform is releasing a documentary about Cash called “The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash”. The 90-minute features interviews with Cash’s family and celebrated collaborators, as well as recently unearthed archive materials.
“The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash” premieres Nov. 11 on YouTube. It was first screened at SXSW Film Festival in March and later at Telluride Film Festival.
