“Nobody I know, and I mean nobody, has covered more ground and made more friends and sang more songs than Ramblin’ Jack Elliott.”
– Johnny Cash
Ramblin’ Jack Elliott is to Dylan what Cassady was to Kerouac: a fountainhead for countless followers and admirers for whom he is proof that an authentic, self-invented life is possible. This film is the story of Jack’s life as seen by Jack himself, documented over four years by friend and filmmaker Oleg Harencar. Jack recounts his life through numerous stories of sailing ships, adventures and an incredible entourage of friends and acquaintances. We follow Jack in his element, be it on horseback or minding a sail, hanging with ordinary folks as well as demigods of politics, the arts and music.
Ramblin’ Jack Elliott will appear with special guests and participate in a discussion following the screening. Producers: Steve Hyman, Kat Lusher, Don Zimmer. Director: Oleg Harencar. (US 2019) Film 60 min. plus discussion.
