Director: Jim Brown
In "Pete Seeger: The Power Of Song", director Jim Brown documents the life of one of the greatest American singer/songwriters of the last century. Pete Seeger was the architect of the folk revival, writing some of its best known songs including "Where Have All the Flowers Gone", "Turn, Turn, Turn" and "If I Had A Hammer". Largely misunderstood and criticized for his strong beliefs he was picketed, protested, blacklisted, and, in spite of his enormous popularity, banned from commercial television for more than 17 years. Musicians including Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthrie, Joan Baez, Bonnie Raitt, Brice Springsteen, Natalie Maines, and Peter, Paul and Mary appear in this intimate portrait and discuss Seeger's lasting influence on the fabric of American music.
3 additional scenes: School of the Americas, Strawberry Festival, Ice Skating, 5 short films from the Seeger family: How to Play the Five String Banjo, Singing Fisherman of Ghana, Wrapping Paper, How to Make a Steel Drum, Finger Song.
