Event Details

My Father and The Man In Black is a new side of American icon Johnny Cash is revealed in secret recordings by his manager who discovered him. An intense personal adventure with universal themes that just happens to feature on of 20th-century music's greatest icons, My Father and The Man In Black presents the untold story of 'bad boy' Johnny Cash, his talented but troubled manager, Saul Holiff, and a son searching for clues to his father's suicide in the shadow of a legend. The film weaves together their letters, phone calls and Holiff's own audio diary (60 hours worth!), to tell the story as it should be told--by the men who lived it. Before there was Johnny and June, there was Johnny and Saul.  (88 minutes)
