John Mellencamp: It's About You
An intimate portrait of music legend John Mellencamp, It's About You is a revealing documentary both about the man and his music and about the culture that inspires him.
Following Mellencamp on his 2009 concert tour with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, the film traces the rock legend's journey to American musical landmarks where his critically acclaimed album No Better Than This begins to take shape. From Sun Studio in Memphis, where Elvis Presley recorded his greatest hits, to recording in the same San Antonio hotel room where legendary bluesman Robert Johnson created his seminal work, Mellencamp reveals an emotional and contemplative side never before seen by the public that offers insight into his musical genius. Stunningly filmed on Super8 by famed photographer Kurt Marcus and his son Ian, It's About You transcends the boundaries of traditional music documentaries to become a soulful meditation on Mellencamp and his beloved small-town America.
