Woody Guthrie: This Machine Kills Fascists

Billy Bragg narrates this retrospective of American folk music legend Woody Guthrie. Guthrie's life is chronicled through rare photos and footage, excerpts from more than 40 of his songs and interviews with friends, family and fellow musicians such as Pete Seeger. An American history lesson rolls out as the origins of Guthrie's classic songs (including "This Land Is Your Land") are traced, exposing themes of hard times, homelessness and racism.
