Holly Near: Singing for Our Lives – Singer, songwriter, and social activist Holly Near has been performing for well over 50 years and in the process created the first soundtrack of the women’s movement. From small-town Northern California to sold-out shows on some of the most iconic stages to million-person peace marches, Singing for Our Lives documents the story of the activist and her art. It also serves as an important testament to a time—a time of protest and coalition building, and the weaving of a multicultural consciousness always rooted in contemporary activism. Featuring Gloria Steinem, Jane Fonda, Ronnie Gilbert, and Tom Hayden with appearances by Pete Seeger, and others, this film elevates Near to her deserved status of iconic artist and activist, and speaks to anyone who believes in peace, justice, feminism, and humanity. Directed by Jim Brown.
