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.

Excellent compendium of interview based information
27 August 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Saw this film in Calgary at the Plaza. I was aware of the premise from a preview I saw and interested in learning more. The topic struck me as one with great challenges when dealing with the culture who's input was required. Still, the film maker managed to line up some incredible interviews- a broad range of performers from Fat Mike of NOFX to David Crosby. Other performers, too, give their voice with good, solid results. And the inclusion of industry professionals added the economic angle to the mix. The money side of things can never be dismissed. The questions asked (though unheard on screen) moved the sequence of topics ahead based on the responses of the interviewees. Using this approach the issue of music as a tool of revolution was expanded to include a broad range of conditions influencing its effectiveness. And it was through these revelations that this doc really hit home with me. The pace, editing and especially the apparent quality of those interview questions- are outstanding considering the fact that (from my research) this seems to be the first feature length documentary from this film maker.
