Is Woody’s song “Depressing”?

Andrew Sullivan today is soliciting nominations for Depressing Christmas Songs, and — no surprise — somebody nominated Woody Guthrie’s 1913 Massacre. We beg to differ. In the course of working on this film, we’ve discovered that while “1913 Massacre” tells a tragic Christmas story, it’s also a song that continues to inspire us to hope for better things — as Woody would have us do. But more on that later: we’ve got to get back to editing. We’ve got a 75 minute roughcut at this point and we’re still trying to raise enough money to finish the film. Keep hope alive.
