Film Offers Footage of Cash Home
A short film titled Mariners and Musicians that will be shown at the upcoming Nashville Film Festival will give fans the last glimpse of the home of Johnny Cash, which was destroyed by fire April 10.
The movie, directed by Steven Lippman, was filmed partly at the Cash home in Hendersonville, Tenn. “It was shot on the very last day before renovations began,” Lippman told Nashville’s daily newspaper The Tennessean. “The images in the film are literally the very last time you see that house in that state.” The Cash home was being renovated by its new owner, former Bee Gees vocalist Barry Gibb, before catching fire and burning to the ground. The film will be shown April 22 at the Nashville Film Festival. For more details on the festival, go to nashvillefilmfestival.org.
