Phil Ochs, one of the best and best known topical folk singers of the 1960s, has since been largely forgotten. A new documentary film is out to revive his music and introduce him to another generation.
Documentarian Kenneth Bowser spent more than seven years compiling the interviews, performance footage, and other elements that went into Phil Ochs: There But for Fortune. Even now, he's amazed by some of the things he was able to include.
For Phil's daughter, Meegan Lee Ochs, working with Bowser offered some insight into her late father's career arc.
Meegan Ochs never lived with her father as a girl, but she cherishes her memories of the times they spent together. And she has come to regard his last visit with her as a touchstone for her path to adulthood.
