Film Night
Thursday, April 10, 7 p.m.
The Green Store / O.B. Green Center
This month's feature film is the 2007 documentary Pete Seeger: The Power of Song. This first authorized film
biography poetically documents Pete Seeger's unique experience and contributions to folk music and society. Seeger (May 3, 1919 – Jan. 27, 2014) introduced America to its own folk heritage, got a whole generation passionate about playing the guitar and picking the banjo, and got them singing together and using music as a force for social change. He deeply believed in the power of song, convinced that individuals can make a difference. Largely misunderstood by his critics, including the U.S. government, for his views on peace, civil rights and ecology, Seeger went from the top of the hit parade to the top of the blacklist — banned from commercial television for more than 17 years. Seeger's inspiring, but not always easy, story is told by Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Bruce Springsteen, Natalie Maines (the Dixie Chicks), Tom Paxton, Arlo Guthrie, and Seeger himself, through a remarkable historical archive. Watch the trailer at www.s.coop/1u8le. The Green Store is located at 4843 Voltaire St. For more information call (619) 225-1083. Free of charge.
