CSNY DÉjÀ VU (M)

USA, 2007 (MIFF 2008, Backbeat)

Director: Bernard Shakey

CSNY DÉjÀ VU (M)

"No one song can change the world. But that doesn't mean its time to stop singing." - Neil Young

There's a sense of déjà vu for Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young as they reunite to once again take an anti-war stance - just as they did in the 60s with Vietnam, when they became a voice of the counterculture. Filmed by director Bernard Shakey - aka Neil Young - CSNY Déjà Vu is a document of their ‘Freedom of Speech' tour of 2006, and a profile of the feelings of the American masses regarding their country's role in Iraq.

Meeting opposition and support, boos and cheers, jubilation and anger, CSNY Déjà Vu finds a nation in conflict with itself, brought together by song.

"A melodious howl of protest against the Iraq War from one of rock's greatest bands." - Hollywood Reporter
