ABOUT THE FILM

The music scene of 1961-1973 is the focus of this affectionate look at the singer/songwriters, performers and writers who made Greenwich Village the epicentre of the musical protest movement. These artists were determined to challenge the status quo – protesting against the Vietnam War and campaigning for civil rights – in the fight for peace and harmony. Featuring interviews, archival footage and new performances, key players including Pete Seeger, Judy Collins, Buffy Sainte Marie and Oscar Brand explain what drew them to The Village, and how they became the world-renowned voice of a generation.
