The Ghost of Johnny Cash at LAFF

We're in post LAFF mode, but here's a gem I am just now getting to post:

The ghost of Johnny Cash made an appearance for the world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival of Brent Meeske’s documentary “Branson,” which follows the strange world of strip-mall performers in Branson, Missouri where over 50 theaters host concerts, performances, and other family friendly acts to a million people a year. The highlight of the film is the dark struggle of Johnny Cash impersonator Jackson Cash, who fights chronic drug problems while trying to maintain his growing career evoking The Man in Black. Afterwards, Jackson did a rousing performance of Cash classics, including the Nine Inch Nails cover, “Hurt.”
