‘Moynihan’ streaming online, Jan. 7-10

WOODSTOCK— Billings Farm & Museum’s 11th annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series features “Moynihan,” a film about the seminal public intellectual and sociologist, policy specialist, ambassador and long serving Senator.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan was a moralist in a political world where morality — the urge to do good – is often overcome by the desire to do well. Over the years, Moynihan’s work has frequently been misinterpreted by political partisans. In “Moynihan,” Ta-Nehisi Coates and Henry Kissinger give insight into this “connoisseur of statistics” who served four presidents. The film offers a timely perspective on today’s debates over issues Moynihan began tackling over 50 years ago.

“Moynihan” is available for streaming Jan. 7-10. The Woodstock Vermont Film Series is produced by Billings Farm & Museum with generous support from local sponsors. Lead sponsors include the Woodstock Inn & Resort and the Ellaway Group. For a full list of films, to learn how to view the films, and to purchase tickets and passes, go to or call 802-457-5303.

  1. Moynihan was a lousy researcher, a self promoter par excellence, and a poverty shamer who conjured up imagined “cultural” reasons for Black poverty that allowed timid white liberals to avoid dealing with the real causes. See S. Greenbaum, Blaming the Poor, Rutgers University Press, 2015.
