Begun in 1991 and completed in 2007, 20 TO LIFE is the real-life story
of this legendary poet-provocateur and American cultural warrior whose
exploits have reverberated throughout the international underground
for 40 years. The story is told by Sinclair, his family, friends and
associates through the years and highlighted by a series of
electrifying poetry performances by Sinclairs contemporary blues and
jazz ensembles.
The disparate elements of Sinclairs unique story have been
brilliantly assembled and painstakingly delineated by director Steve
Gebhardt and editor Tom Hayes in this multi-layered 87-minute feature
film from Musicus Media. The soundtrack was supervised by Sinclair
himself and features music by the MC-5, John Lennon, Chuck Berry,
Howlin Wolf, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Cecil Taylor, Sun Ra, Allen
Ginsberg, Sly the Family Stone, Thelonious Monk, Charles
Neville, the Wild Magnolias and the Re-Birth Brass Band.

John Sinclair first emerged out of his small-town Michigan background to forge a legendary course through the 1960s as a cultural activist, manager of the MC5, and Chairman of the White Panther Party. An early victim of the War on Drugs who faced 20 years to life in prison for giving two joints to an undercover policewoman, Sinclair served 29 months of a 9-1/2-to-10-year sentence before his legal victory on appeal changed the law for good. The long campaign waged by Sinclair culminated in a massive John Sinclair Freedom Rally headlined by John Lennon & Yoko Ono, Stevie Wonder, Bob Seger, Phil Ochs, Allen Ginsberg and Bobby Seale that resulted in Sinclair’s release from prison on December 13, 1971-just three days after the event.
A compelling documentary with appearances by John Lennon & Yoko Ono, Allen Ginsberg, MC-5 and many more.
