Sedona Movie Fest presents ‘Harry Chapin: When In Doubt, Do One thing’ Oct. 16-22
“Harry Chapin: When in doubt, do something.”
The Sedona International Film Festival is premiering the award-winning documentary Harry Chapin: When In Doubt, Do Something October 16-22 at the Mary D. Fisher Theater, Northern Arizona.
Harry Chapin: When In Doubt, Do Something is the inspirational story of Grammy-winning singer / songwriter Harry Chapin (“Cat’s in the Cradle” and “Taxi”).
Chapin sold over 16 million albums and was one of the most popular artists and activists of his generation, who spent his fame and fortune trying to end world hunger before his tragic death.
The film features Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Pete Seeger, Sir Bob Geldof, Kenny Rogers, Graham Nash, Pat Benatar, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, Robert Lamm, Richie Havens and Harry Belafonte delving deeply into Chapin’s larger than life impact on music and the world.
“Harry Chapin: When In Doubt, Do Something” follows the well-known childhood folk singer – who was spent in the shadow of his father as a jazz drummer – during his tragically short life and captures the ups and downs of one of the great humanists of the people.
Using archive footage and new interviews, the film recounts key moments in Chapin’s life, including playing with his brothers and working on the Oscar-nominated documentary “Legendary Champions”, on his solo success with hits like “Taxi”, “WOLD” “And” Cat’s In The Cradle, “and his relentless philanthropic work, which included his efforts with WhyHunger and a seemingly endless series of benefit performances that resulted in him posthumously receiving the Congressional Gold Medal.
This documentary paints a new picture of the singer-songwriter who used his fame as a starting point to help others and influence politics.
Harry Chapin: When In Doubt, Do Something will be screened October 16-22 at the Mary D. Fisher Theater.
