    This Land is Your Land, This Land is My Land

    Bound for Glory
    1976. 147 min. Biography, drama, music. Rated PG. Director: Hal Ashby. Writers: Robert Getchell (screenplay), Woody Guthrie (autobiography)

    Woody Guthrie set the lives of struggling workers and poor people to music during the Great Depression.  You know who we're talking about!

    In 1936, Woody Guthrie (David Carridine, in the film role of a lifetime), along with thousands of other folk, flees the dust bowls of Texas and heads for California in hopes of finding a better life. He hitchhikes, hops freight trains, carries his guitar, and sings his way across America, raising the spirits of the poor with his folksy wisdom and fierce commitment to justice.

    Directed by Hal Ashby and adapted for the screen by writer Robert Getchell, Bound for Glory was nominated for six Oscars in 1976 and won for Best Cinematography by Haskell Wexler and Best Original Music Score.

    Many of Woody's songs have become anthems taking us from picket line to picket line. Sing out for justice.  See ya on November 3 at the Peace Center .
