Harry Belafonte kämpfte an der Seite von Martin Luther King Jr. für schwarze Bürgerrechte in den USA und mit Nelson Mandela gegen die Apartheid in Südafrika - weltweit bekannt wurde er mit dem Calypso-Hit "Banana Boat Song". 100 Millionen Schallplatten verkaufte der mittlerweile 85-jährige Sohn karibischer Einwanderer und spielte in mehr als 40 Filmen mit. Mit lässigem Understatement, überschwänglicher Freundlichkeit und einem strahlenden Lächeln engagiert sich Belafonte seit Jahrzehnten politisch - bis heute. Seine Kritik an der an der amerikanischen Aussen- und Sozialpolitik erregt nach wie vor Aufsehen. In ihrem Film SING YOUR SONG folgt Susanne Rostock den Spuren eines aussergewöhnlichen Künstlers, Aktivisten und Familienmenschen. (Quelle: Umschlag)
