Pete and Toshi Get a Camera | 2012
During the McCarthy hearings, Pete Seeger refused to name names and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Blacklisted and out on appeal, he purchases an old camera, and with his wife Toshi, they start filming their musician friends. After several years of making small films, they decide to travel the world to film musicians in the most remote corners of the earth. This original footage is intercut with modern day interviews of the family, providing insight into a time and place that does not exist anymore.
