This classic documentary made by director Robert Elfstrom shows Pete Seeger as a fighter for human rights through songs such as I Dreamed I Saw Joe Hill Last Night and If I Had a Hammer; as environmentalist with a sequence showing him navigating the Clearwater sloop to clean up the Hudson River; as an unyielding anti-Vietnam War activist, who denounced the war most famously, with Waist Deep in the Big Muddy and with the poignant Where Have All the Flowers Gone? Elfstrom's film was made when Seeger was still blacklisted by major media organisations because of his opposition to the war in Vietnam and one scene shows Pete with Johnny Cash, when Cash, who admired him tremendously, defied his network to feature him on The Johnny Cash Show. The film culminates in Seeger leading an anti-war march on Washington by singing We Shall Overcome, emotionally revealing the passion for peace, justice and human dignity that drove his art. Along the way, we are treated to renditions of songs that define an era: Turn, Turn, Turn, Wasn't That A Time, Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall, Walking Down Death Row, among many others. Besides Johnny Cash, Don McLean, Lester Flatt and Rev Kirkpatrick are among those who sing with Pete.
