Hank Williams’ daughter Jett Williams, the film’s director Harry Thomason and the producer Benjy Gaither will attend a free first showing of ‘The Last Ride’ in New York City on June 20th. Seating is first come first served.
The three will participate in a panel discussion following the showing at The New School at 66 West 12th Street New York NY at 6pm.
The title of the panel discussion seems very appropriate: I Saw the Light: Hank Williams’ Sixty Years of Influence on American music.
As listed in the previous post, the film will open for one week at Cinema Village at 22 East 12th Street on June 22.
Here is a link to the press release from the school.
