Greenwich Village: Music that Defined a Generaton is the amazing untold story about the very people whose music helped change the world.
A feature documentary that combines talking heads with rare archival footage and new live performances to tell a story about a community that created a generation-defining music. Greenwich Village was the birthplace of the singer/songwriter and songs of love and relationships. Between 1961-1973, many musicians in The Village banded together to sing about the radical social upheaval of the time. As these new singers emerged, Greenwich blossomed as a place that promoted a better future. Their music challenged the status quo by singing about taboo subjects - fighting for civil liberties, protesting the Vietnam War, and holding governments accountable for their actions.
Narrated by Academy Award winner, Susan Sarandon and featuring poignant interviews with Pete Seeger, Kris Kristofferson, Don McLean, Peter Yarrow, Arlo Guthrie, Lucy and Carly Simon, Eric Andersen, Tom Chapin and Judy Collins, among dozens of other music luminaries, the story of The Village unfolds.
