Ballad of Ramblin' Jack

Jack's duaghter Aiyana had originally wanted to document the her father in action and bring his story to light. However, when she hit the road with him, the focus of the story turned from the roving cowboy's life on the road to the daughter's search for a dad who was rarely at home. This film, shot over a period of two years, contains performances, interviews and archival material including home movies from the Guthrie family's private collection.

Woody Guthrie ain't got no home /
This film explores Guthrie's creative genius -- his life and music as well as lesser known talents like writing and painting. Every American who has listened to the radio knows Guthrie's 'This Land Is Your Land.' The music of the folk singer/songwriter has been recorded by everyone from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to U2.
