THE DEVIL AND DANIEL JOHNSTON
Starring: Daniel Johnston, Mabel Johnston, Bill Johnston
A hilarious yet harrowing look at the iconic artist and musician- Daniel Johnston.
His drawings and sketches are exhibited and sold worldwide. Beck, Wilco, Sonic Youth and Pearl Jam have recorded his songs. But beneath Daniel Johnston’s success as an artist and musician is an incredible story of genius touched by madness: diagnosed as manic-depressive, Johnston has spent the last three decades of his life in-and-out of mental institutions. Compellingly told through a combination of interviews, home movies and performance footage.
