Filmmakers Maureen Gosling (THIS AIN’T NO MOUSE MUSIC, BURDEN OF DREAMS) and Jed Riffe (ISHI, THE LAST YAHI, THE LONG SHADOW) have joined forces with producer (and daughter of Barbara Dane) Nina Menéndez (TROPICOLA), to begin production on a feature-length documentary, BARBARA DANE: ON MY WAY.

“On My Way” will celebrate the life of Barbara Dane, a fiercely independent woman born in the 1920s, who took the power of her voice from the bright lights of the stage to the tumultuous streets of 1960s America, paving her own way with her art, in the service of social justice, civil rights and peace. Still going strong in her 90s, we’ll learn what made her switch directions from the coveted life of a famous jazz and blues singer to a committed social activist.

The film will features live concerts, old and new, historical footage of Barbara and the times she was part of and interviews as well as photos, posters, letters, and more from her vast archive.
