Life in G-Chord

This musical documentary tells the unlikely story of Japanese folksinger/songwriter Hisao Shinagawa. He moved from Tokyo to America in 1974 following in the footsteps of his hero Woody Guthrie. Improbably, he befriended Johnny Cash and Townes Van Zandt after hitchhiking to Nashville. Now at age 60, he plays his music on the streets of Los Angeles, while living in near poverty. Inspirational and ecclectic, this documentary teaches the importance of never giving up on a dream. Miraculously, Mr. Sinagawa himself will be at the Guild Cinema performing a live, post-screening concert. 66 minutes
