We’re Still Here: Johnny Cash’s Bitter Tears Revisited, based on director Antonino D’Ambrosio’s critically acclaimed book A Heartbeat and a Guitar: Johnny Cash and the Making of Bitter Tears, tells the story of Cash’s little-known concept album and his unique collaboration with folk artist Peter LaFarge. The album was released in 1964 – four years before the American Indian Movement took over Alcatraz – when the nation was undergoing major social upheaval and civil rights protests.
