I intended this movie for a class activity at the end of the school year in my guitar class. I believe most of them enjoyed it, but it was quite political for a music class, though that is definitely a part of Pete Seeger's story. It is well told and has a lot of interesting detail about the man and his times. Quite a bit of musical example is included, but I would not show it again, because parents in this quite conservative area could complain.

I had to watch this for school and I am so glad that I did - it was really a very moving documentary about a really remarkable person. Well worth seeing!

This will teach people a lot about Pete and the type of music that he performed. Many people are interviewed in putting together the material.

This film is an incredibly powerful portrayal of one of the great masters of American music (and true heroes of the age). Drawing on extensive interviews with Pete, his family, his contemporaries and those he has inspired, along with concert and historical footage, it presents a fairly comprehensive portrait of his life, times, struggles and art. It is a must see for any fan of American Folk or Popular Music, or for those who want to learn more about the roots and influences of "Folk." It also offers hope to those of us who are daunted by the problems facing our world. Pete Seeger is an example of a person who never abandoned his faith in the capacity of human beings to come together and make things better, singing all the while.
