Award-winning singer-songwriter Harry Chapin (“Taxi” and “Cats in the Cradle”), who lived in Huntington with his family, spent his fame and fortune chasing a dream to end world hunger and poverty. In the process, he inspired, changed, and saved the lives of millions of people. HARRY CHAPIN: WHEN IN DOUBT, DO SOMETHING is a vibrant, music-filled, energetic, and rousing appreciation of an artist whose songs are a permanent part of the American lexicon and whose passion for helping others continues to be an inspiration.
The film features Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Pete Seeger, Sir Bob Geldof, Kenny Rogers, Graham Nash, Pat Benatar, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, Robert Lamm, Richie Havens, and Harry Belafonte intimately reflecting on Chapin’s larger-than-life impact on music and the world including his founding, along with Bill Ayres, of WhyHunger – the nonprofit organization leading the movement to end hunger and advance the human right to nutritious food in the U.S. and around the world. Harry also founded Long Island’s first food bank, Long Island Cares, which continues to serve thousands of individuals and families in need.
