Kino Lorber rocks with Levon Helm doc

Film to be released in early 2013

Kino Lorber has acquired all North American distribution rights to Jacob Hatley’s documentary “Ain’t in it for My Health: A Film about Levon Helm.”

Helm died of cancer in April 2012.

Kino Lorber is planning to release the film in theaters across North America in early 2013, followed by a VOD and home video release set for the summer along with other digital and television distribution.

Hatley’s documentary was shot over two years. It focuses on Helm at home in Woodstock, N.Y., in the midst of creating his first studio album in 25 years after his 2007 album “Dirt Farmer” brought him back to the spotlight. It also shows Helm dealing with the burdens of renewed celebrity, continuing financial obligation and returning health problems.

The deal was negotiated between Kino Lorber CEO Richard Lorber and Stephen Brower of the Welk Music Group/Sugar Hill Records/Vanguard Records.
