TROUBADOURS is a film about the singer-songwriter scene in Los Angeles from the end of the sixties to the middle of the seventies. In a time where the Beatles were imploding and the Stones didn't know what to do, there was a sense that things were going to change. As the swinging sixties subsided, a new generation of American artists surfaced. This documentary charts the rise of this movement, as told by people such as Carole King, James Taylor, Jackson Browne, David Crosby, Elton John, Kris Kristofferson, Steve Martin and Roger McGuinn.
The American Morgan Neville has broad experience from film- and TV-production, both as a producer, writer and editor. As a director he is first and foremost known for his films about musicians, such as JOHNNY CASH’S AMERICA (2008) and SEARCH AND DESTROY: IGGY AND THE STOOGES' RAW POWER (2010).
