US, 2014, 91 min, in English

THE WINDING STREAM is a story about the family at the heart of American roots music. Starting with the Original Carter Family—A.P., Sara and Maybelle—the film traces the trio’s early musical success, the transformation of the act into The Carter Sisters, June Carter’s marriage to legend Johnny Cash, and the efforts of the present-day Carter family to keep the music alive.

"Impressively researched and deftly crafted...Genuinely uplifting."
