Between 1961-1973, many musicians in Greenwich Village banded together to sing about the radical social upheaval of the time. 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. Featuring poignant interviews with Pete Seeger, Kris Kristofferson, Don McLean, Peter Yarrow, Arlo Guthrie, Lucy and Carly Simon, Tom Chapin and Judy Collins, among dozens of music luminaries, Greenwich Village combines talking heads with archival footage and new live performances to tell a story about a community that created a generation-defining music.
