U.S. indie Kino Lorber has picked up the North American distribution rights to Ain’t In It For My Health: A Film About Levon Helm, a doc on the legendary drummer and vocalist for The Band, who died of cancer this April.

The New York-based distribution company will release the film theatrically across North America in early 2013, to be followed by a VoD and home video release in the summer.

The Jacob Hatley-directed documentary focuses on Helm as he is in the midst of making his first studio album in 25 years. Shot over two years, Ain’t In It For My Health also documents Helm’s renewed fame following his 2007 comeback album, financial obligations, and recurring health problems.

“We see this as a mission now to be able to open the film, and Levon’s life, to legions of fans, followers and new audiences, who will be thrilled to discover the scope and depth of his contribution,” said Richard Lorber, president and CEO of Kino Lorber.
