Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison

In a year saturated in violence and historical change, Cash's 1968 concert at California's Folsom State Prison transformed Cash's career, produced one of music's great recordings and became a symbol of the 1960s.

Drawing from rare archival footage, stark images by rock photographer Jim Marshall and interviews with participants and observers, this new film walks the road that led to the concert that in no small part built the legend of Mr Cash. Australian premiere!

Screens with Simeon Soffer's The Wildest Show in the South: The Angola Prison Rodeo (30 mins, USA, 2000), an Oscar-nominated short film exploring the infamous annual rodeo that takes place behind the walls of the Angola State Penitentiary.
