More Than Just The "King of Calypso"

Impressively directed by Susanne Rostock - "Sing Your Song" (filmed in 2011) is an in-depth bio-documentary closely covering the life and times of singer/actor/social activist, Harry Belafonte (who has been dubbed the "King of Calypso").

Through stills, archival footage, and interviews (especially with Belafonte, himself, 83 at the time) - "Sing Your Song's" story shows us a man whose glamorous career as a performer had often taken a backseat to the pressing issues of dealing with racism and segregation against blacks not only in the USA, but in other places around the world, as well.

Yes. I certainly recommend this documentary to all.
