JOHN MELLENCAMP: IT'S ABOUT YOU - A FILM BY KURT & IAN MARKUS --- NYC & LA SCREENINGS BEGIN THIS WEEK!
As we announced last week, John Mellencamp: It's About You - A Film By Kurt and Ian Markus premieres for a limited engagement at the IFC Center in New York City (January 4-16, 2012) and at the Music Hall in Los Angeles (January 6-16 2012). Visit the theaters' websites for the show times each day during the run. Don't miss your chance to see this intimate look into John at work and on tour!

Please note that this is the complete 80 minute version of the film. A shorter version was shown before concerts on John's No Better Than This Tour.

Here is the press release describing the film:

JOHN MELLENCAMP: ITíS ABOUT YOU
Directed by renowned photographer Kurt Markus and his son, Ian Markus, It's About You is a new musical documentary that offers a rare and intimate look at the life and music of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer John Mellencamp. The film premiered at this yearís SXSW festival and follows Mellencamp on his summer 2009 concert tour and during the recording of his most recent album, 2010ís universally acclaimed No Better Than This, the sessions for which took place at American musical and historical landmarks, including Sun Studios in Memphis and the First African Baptist Church in Savannah, GA. We see Mellencamp recording Ė with a single mike and mono tape recorder more than half a century old Ė in the same hotel room where legendary bluesman Robert Johnson created some of his most memorable work. Along the way, Mellencamp reveals a side not often seen by the public, in a film that becomes a soulful, highly personal meditation on small-town America.

Kurt Markusí photography has appeared in such leading publications as Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, GQ and The New York Times Magazine, and he has shot cutting-edge ad campaigns for BMW, Armani, Nike and other companies. His unique vision has been brought to bear on It's About You, which was shot on Super 8 and whose vintage Americana look is the cinematic equivalent of a well-worn pair of jeans.
Running Time: 80 Minutes
Rated: NR

Here are two excerpts from the documentary:

Here is an excerpt from this great think piece: "Mellencampís presentation of the truth that he sees outside of his window always makes me feel good about myself, and I enjoy his music more with each passing year, largely because whenever I play a Mellencamp song, I almost never think about Mellencamp. I almost always think about me and I almost always think about my grandfather, Nick Bruich..." Read More
