My Song – Harry Belafonte

Client: Random House Bertelsmann

“Get them to sing your song, and they’ll want to know who you are.”  - Harry Belafonte

Preparing for the release of Harry Belafonte’s autobiography My Song, editors at Random House asked producer/director Rachel Talbot to sit down with the legendary performer for a videotaped interview about his life. The interview, which took place in Belafonte’s New York apartment, lasted more than two hours and covered a wide range of subjects, covering the extraordinary life of the entertainer and activist.

The series of videos that Talbot produced, an excerpt of which is included here, were included as “enhanced content” in the e-book version of the best-selling memoir which was released in 2012.
