"Beautiful, rich, captivating! 

A rare view into some deeper aspects

of the often complicated

life/art intersections."

                               Lars Movin

                               Writer and Filmmaker

                               

                                                 

Eric Andersen was at the vanguard of the Greenwich Village folk music scene of the 1960s and positioned to be a rising star of that movement.

 But in a five year period, he found himself a victim of improbable circumstances that changed his trajectory.

 

His story is finally being told

"The film is really wonderful...Bitter sweet but also with a lovely sense of optimism and humor. Just perfect."
