23rd TDF: Greek Premiere

The tragic story of one of the most singular performers in modern history – the shining star of all time classic Blues Brothers – through the creative use of unique archive material: previously unheard audio tapes recorded shortly after his death, never-before-seen photos, letters, and home-movies give intimate access to the brilliant life of John Belushi, who had catapulted himself into being one of the most recognizable stars in America by the age of 30. A documentary that examines the life of a shining star who captured the hearts of devoted audiences, even if the darkness of addiction lingered behind the scenes.
