Illuminating the foundational family history of the Carters and Cashes and their significant contributions to the world of country music, The Winding Stream is an incisive documentary and a loving tribute to a dynasty that paved the way for countless artists. The film features original interviews with family members Rosanne Cash and Johnny Cash, and performances by Rosanne Cash, Sheryl Crow, Rhiannon Giddens, George Jones, Kris Kristofferson, John Prine, and other notables. “Impressively researched and deftly crafted ... Cogent and compelling as a pop-culture history lesson, and genuinely uplifting while it shows how contemporary artists — along with descendants like Rosanne and John Carter Cash—keep the legacy of A.P., Mother Maybelle, June, and Johnny alive and thriving” (Joe Leydon, Variety).
Curated in conjunction with the performance of Rosanne Cash at the Chan Centre on Saturday, September 28 at 8:00 pm. More info.
