Fortunate Son

USA, 2003 (MIFF 2003, Documentary)

Director: Greg Wilcox

Fortunate Son was stolen by an advert from the 60s peace movement. Wilcox has stolen it back. Responding to the ad's patriotic misreading of the Creedence ditty, this film returns the song to its roots and exposes America's most fortunate son.
