PHIL OCHS: There But For Fortune.A film by Kenneth Bowser, Doc, NR, 97 min.
"An essential portrait of an artist who ought to
be far better known. A MUST-SEE."
- Entertainment Weekly

As our country continues to embroil itself in foreign wars and once again pins its hopes on a new leader's promise for change, the feature length documentary, Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune is a timely tribute to an unlikely American hero.

Phil Ochs, a folk singing legend, who many called "the emotional heart of his generation," loved his country and he pursued its honor, in song and action, with a ferocity that had no regard for consequences. Wielding only a battered guitar, a clear voice and a quiver of razor sharp songs, he tirelessly fought the "good fight" for peace and justice throughout his short life.

Today, the music of Ochs lives on, influencing and inspiring songwriters around the world. Artists such as Pearl Jam, Joan Baez, Ani DiFranco, Billy Bragg, and
They Might Be Giants have covered his songs, the bestknown of which include "I Ain't Marching Anymore," "Changes," "Crucifixion," "Draft Dodger Rag," "Love Me, I'm a Liberal," "Outside of a Small Circle of Friends," "Power and the Glory," "There But for Fortune," and "The War Is Over."

A truth seeking troubadour, with a guitar in hand, Phil stood up for what he believed in and challenged us all to do the same. Unyielding in his political principals and unbending in his artistic vision, Phil Ochs, though branded a traitor by his critics, was above all a fiercely patriotic American. This is his story.
