Shot during the course of two-plus years, this highly anticipated film focuses in on the four-time Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member after his 2007 comeback album, Dirt Farmer, brought him back to the spotlight.

" it's impossible to imagine a more exquisite, honest, and beautifully detailed documentary about the life of Levon Helm than Jacob Hatley's Ain't in It for My Health." - Peter Gerstenzang (Village Voice)

"...an unsentimental, salt-of-the-earth tribute that keeps the beat in a way that would make this extraordinary journeyman beam." (four stars) - David Fear (Time Out NY)

"A captivating look at a musician hanging onto his art for dear life." - Daniel Carlson, Hollywood Reporter

"One of the most interesting and compelling portraits of a musician in a long time" - Josh Olson, Ain't it Cool News
