Documents the life and times of Howard Zinn, historian, activist, and author of the best selling classic A People's History of the United States. Featuring rare archival materials, interviews with Howard Zinn as well as colleagues and friends including Noam Chomsky, Marian Wright Edelman, Daniel Ellsberg, Tom Hayden, and Alice Walker, You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train captures the essence of this activist and thinker who has been a catalyst for progressive change for more than 60 years. The film follows the trajectory of Zinn's life from his early childhood in the slums of New York City through his time as a teacher and civil rights and antiwar activist. Zinn has informed and inspired generations of those who struggle for social and economic justice with hope. As Noam Chomsky has said of him, "It is no exaggeration to say he has changed the consciousness of a generation." Features music by Billy Bragg, Woody Guthrie, and Eddie Vedder. (78 minutes; 2004.)
