(Gibson) The Band's Levon Helm is the subject of a new documentary that premiered in New York City last Friday (April 19). Following its New York premiere, the film will be shown in select theaters throughout the U.S.

Titled Ain't In It for My Health, the film offers an intimate look at Helm's life and career, combining archival footage with material shot during the last five years of the musician's life.

Speaking to Reuters, longtime Helm collaborator Larry Campbell said director Jacob Hatley "was like a fly on the wall, filming Levon's daily life and all of us around him as we worked on music and tried to get his career back on track."

"There was no pressure, no deadline," Campbell added, "and Levon loved being on camera. He was a real natural, as you can see in the movies he did, like Coalminer's Daughter. Making this film was very much his idea." Helm died of cancer on April 19, 2012, at 72. more on this story
