Pete Seeger: The Power Of Song movie trailer - starring Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Seeger. Directed by Jim Brown. Theatrical Release Date: 9/14/2007
As our country continues to embroil itself in foreign wars and pins its hopes on a new leader's promise for change, Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune is a timely and relevant tribute to an unlikely American hero. Over the course of a meteoric music career that spanned two turbulent decades, Phil Ochs sought the bright lights of fame and social justice in equal measure - a contradiction that eventually tore him apart. From youthful idealism to rage to pessimism, the arch of Ochs' life paralleled that of the times, and the anger, satire and righteous indignation that drove his music also drove him to dark despair. In this brilliantly constructed film, interview and performance footage of Ochs is illuminated by the ruminations of Joan Baez, Tom Hayden, Pete Seeger, Sean Penn, Peter Yarrow, Christopher Hitchens, Ed Sanders, and others.
This two-part film, directed by Martin Scorsese, focuses on Dylan's life and music from 1961-66 and contains never-seen footage from the Bob Dylan Archives as well as rare concert footage, including from his legendary performance at the Newport Folk Festival in 1966 when he went electric. Interviews with Allen Ginsberg, Pete Seeger, Joan Baez and other artists and musicians whose lives intertwined with Dylan's during that time provide additional information and reminiscences.
Dylan is also interviewed in the present (2006) and offers a running commentary on his early life and times.
