Reel to Reel: Greenwich Village: Music That Defined A Generation

Greenwich Village: Music That Define a Generation is a feature-length documentary about the Greenwich Village music scene and how it sparked everlasting political, social and cultural changes. For the first time, the greatest singer-songwriters, authors and performers from Greenwich Village reflect on how they collectively became the voice of a generation. Through poignant interviews, rare archival footage and new live performances, Greenwich Village: Music The Defined A Generation tells a story about community, courage and most importantly – 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. This is the amazing untold story about the very people whose music helped change the world. A panel discussion, moderated by President of The GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares Scott Goldman and featuring Kris Kristofferson, Michelle Phillips, John Flynn, Owen Elliot and director Laura Archibald will follow the film.
