(2005, USA, HD, 110m) dir Jeff Feuerzeig. Filmmaker Jeff Feuerzeig won the 2005 Sundance Documentary Director award for his moving portrait on musician Daniel Johnston. Feuerzeig chronicles the life of a manic-depressive musician and artist, using a blend of home movies, Johnston’s own audiotapes, vintage performances, and current footage. Johnston has recorded more than 10 full-length albums and amassed a prolific portfolio of sketches, and has among his supporters Matt Groening, David Bowie, Sonic Youth, Beck, and Tom Waits. Johnston passed away this past September at the age of 58.
