Getting to interview Johnny Cash for The Winding Stream was one of the best things I’ve ever gotten to do as a filmmaker. He was gracious and kind to me and my crew and, at turns, gravely intense and then devilishly funny. It was a wonderful experience to meet a musical legend like him and see how profoundly he cherished his relationship with the Carter Family and June.
When I asked him how he viewed the Carter legacy in a world of saturated information and entertainment, he had this passionate response.
We are honored to be making a film that helps preserve the Carters’ memory. We think that’s what the Man in Black wanted and the reason he gave us this interview.
Honestly, it’s why I’ve been so tenacious about finishing the film. We were entrusted with this great interview and the fervor and interest of the whole Carter and Cash Family and we’ve just got to get it done. With your help, we can.
