With special guests! Director Jacob Hatley’s haunting, personal portrait finds critically acclaimed musician Levon Helm at home in Woodstock, NY, in the midst of creating his first studio album in 25 years. Shot over the course of two years before Helm’s death in 2012, this highly anticipated film focuses in on The Band founding member, four-time Grammy winner, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee after his 2007 album Dirt Farmer brought him back into the spotlight. While this period was artistically productive, Ain’t in It for My Health also shows Helm dealing with the burdens of renewed celebrity, continuing financial obligation, and returning health problems. The man known worldwide for his soulful voice, as well as his singular and unparalleled drumming and multi-instrumental skills, permitted a camera crew inside his home to show the world an intimate side of his art and life. –Los Angeles Film Festival
