Neil Young’s politically charged documentary film, “CSNY: Deja Vu,” is expected to be released July 25 in the US, according to a press release. The documentary was filmed during Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s “Freedom of Speech 2006” tour of North America.

The tour featured music from Young’s controversial “Living With War” CD–an album of protest songs written as a rebuke of President George W. Bush and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Songs from the controversial album are woven together on the new film with archival material, news footage, audience reactions and observations of the issues surrounding the integration of politics and art, according to a statement.

A distribution deal is in the works that will make the film available on the big screen simultaneously with a video-on-demand release. In addition, Netflix will air the film on the “Watch Instantly” streaming service the same day. The band’s label is expected to release a DVD version in the fall–prior to the presidential elections. HDNet is expected to air the film the day the DVD is released.
