Phil Ochs: There but for Fortune

Philip David “Phil” Ochs was an American singer/songwriter known for his political activism and his songs that bring to light often-controversial issues of the world. His twisted humor, quick wit and his sardonic worldviews made Ochs one of the prominent figures in socio-political landscape. The artist has always kept in touch with the real world of politics and humanism to make his lyrics.

Ochs’ popularity is attributed to his youthful idealism, his righteous indignation stemming from the country engaging in foreign wars and his frustrations over social equality in the nation. His dark lyrics and turbulent persona life led to Ochs alcohol dependency that inevitably drove him to the brink. The film also highlights ruminations from Ochs’ friends including Sean Penn Peter Yarrow and Joan Baez.
