The Power of Song: full documentary

In PETE SEEGER: POWER OF SONG, the only authorized biography, 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 by his critics, including the US government, for his views on peace, unionism, civil rights and ecology, Seeger was targeted by the communist witch hunt of the Fifties. He was picketed, protested, blacklisted, and, in spite of his enormous popularity, banned from American television for more than 17 years. With a combination of never-before-seen archival footage and personal films made by Seeger and his wife, PETE SEEGER: POWER OF SONG chronicles the life of this legendary artist and political activist. 

PETE SEEGER: POWER OF SONG was directed by Jim Brown and produced by Jim Brown, Michael Cohl, and William Eigen and executive produced by Norman Lear and Toshi Seeger.
