Jack Johnson: En Concert Premiere Set
Featuring onstage performances of Jack and his band in both massive venues and intimate spaces, the Emmett Malloy-directed film reveals a musician riding the peak of his stardom while giving deeper insight into how this global icon manages to keep his cool amidst the fame. In backstage interviews and candid conversations with his bandmates as well as friends like Ben Harper, Mason Jennings, G Love, Neil Halstead, and Matt Costa, the artistically shot En Concert — which will be officially released two weeks later with an accompanying live album sourced from the same tour as well as a 60-page booklet — is a behind-the-scenes look at a one-of-a-kind life on the road, peppered with scenes of river surfing in Germany, bike riding in France, and rainy days in England. It's destined to be a classic, and this is the world's first chance to check it out.
