Storyline

Documents the rise of a new generation of activist musicians who are living proof that music is a powerful tool in the ongoing struggle for social change. From the Dixie Chicks to Michael Franti to the punk band Anti-Flag, artists across the musical spectrum recount their motivations and struggles over the last decade, in a post-9/11 world where dissent has been silenced and censorship is commonplace. No ordinary music doc, this inspiring rockumentary draws on the power of music and insights of artists to help us understand our world and find the courage to speak out about issues that concern us all.

Stimulating Discussions & Insights Into Protest Music Surrounding Bush Era Politics
8 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

This film features footage of live concerts and interviews with music makers protesting the Bush Era politics post 9-11. The arguments they make are rather compelling. A short excerpt from an interview with folk legend David Crosby drives home the point that in the Bush era, musicians and artists were discouraged from singing or speaking out against the war in Iraq. The movie is worth a viewing or two to experience the music of this historical time and see some great footage and rare clips. Getting an inside peak at artists discussing their passion for social justice and watching them perform in front of supportive audiences is inspiring. The economic structure surrounding the music business was eloquently discussed by ethnomusicologist Rob Bowman. The film focuses on a subject matter that remains outside of main stream media attention.
