NYC PREMIERE Johnny Physical Lives is the story of the secret world of two brothers making a rock n’ roll documentary as one goes through cancer treatment. When younger brother Jonathan passes away in the midst of the production, older brother Joshua must finish the project on his own. First time filmmaker, Joshua Neuman weaves footage of his brother Jonathan in and out of the hospital during treatment with an interview of Jonathan shot by famed documentarian Albert Maysles and live animation to “physically”┬ábring to life Jonathan’s inner world, showing how he experienced cancer through the eyes of a rock star.
