YouTube Originals Releases Trailer For Upcoming Johnny Cash Documentary

Johnny Cash fans are in for a treat when The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash, a new documentary from director Thom Zimny, premieres on YouTube Originals on Nov. 11. The film, which was created with the full cooperation of the Cash estate and is rich in recently-discovered archival materials, brings Cash the man out from behind the legend.

Taking the remarkable Folsom Prison recording as a central motif and featuring interviews with family and celebrated collaborators, the 90-minute documentary explores the artistic victories, the personal tragedies, the struggles with addiction, and the spiritual pursuits that colored Johnny Cash’s life.

The documentary originally made its debut in March at the SXSW Film Festival and also screened recently at the Telluride Film Festival as part of the event’s Backlot Series. The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash is also set to screen at the 50th Annual Nashville Film Festival on Monday, October 7th.
