Director: Susanne Rostock
"To call [this] an epic might seem overblown, but it isn't just the story of man, but the story of a country and a century." - Variety
Chosen to open the Sundance Film Festival, Sing Your Song blazes through the life of American singer and icon Harry Belafonte.
Tracking not simply the arc of his music career, but also the impassioned political and social activism that is his true legacy, filmmaker Susanne Rostock weaves a complex, sweeping tale of a man whose life has symbolised so much of the American century.
From McCarthyism to the civil rights movement, from the flush of musical success to the failure of his marriages, Sing Your Song is an intimate, frank story of a remarkable life, and a stirring call-to-action for others to follow in it's wake.
