Willie Nelson & Family Docu-Film Set To Debut At Sundance
The world premiere of Willie Nelson and Family, the first authorized film exploring the life and career of the country icon, is set to debut at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival.
The festival will take place Jan. 19–29 in Park City, Salt Lake City and the Sundance Resort, along with a selection of films available online across the country Jan. 24–29, 2023. Blackbird Presents and Sight Unseen will present the new Nelson five-part documentary series during this year’s festival.
Award-winning filmmakers Thom Zimny and Oren Moverman construct an intimate memoir of the Red Headed Stranger in the documentary, traversing the highs, lows and in-betweens of Nelson’s personal life and professional career. Along with close friends and family who have accompanied him on his remarkable journey, Nelson tells his story in his own voice.
Developed by longtime Nelson manager Mark Rothbaum and Blackbird Presents Founder & Chief Creative Officer Keith Wortman, Nelson and his family and friends provided exclusive participation and access to his archives. Executive Producers are Wortman, Rothbaum, Annie Nelson, Julia Lebedev, Eddie Vaisman, Leonid Lebedev, Sean Stuart and Mark Ankner.
