DOCUMENTARY – JOHNNY WINTER: DOWN AND DIRTY
Johnny Winter: Down & Dirty, the definitive, feature-length documentary by acclaimed director and producer, Greg Olliver.
Produced independently through Secret Weapon Films in NYC, Greg Olliver was welcomed into the Johnny Winter family during the final two years of Johnny s life, capturing the making of his Grammy-winning Step Back (Best Blues Album, 2015), and traveling the world from Beaumont to Hong Kong. Winter continued to perform over 200 sold out shows a year until his death on tour in Switzerland in 2014.
The result is an intimate portrait of Johnny and the blues, his childhood, friendship and loss (Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker); relationships (Janis Joplin and his wife of over 20 years) and his crushing addiction to heroin and methadone (learn how his manager and bandmate Paul Nelson secretly weaned Johnny off a 30-year addiction).
