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.

Good insight
29 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

Good insight into the dark side of the music industry, as well as the good side of humanity where artists stay true to their art and their message rather than going for the fast buck. Like so many other things today, music has become sickeningly commercialised to the point where no intelligent people I know ever listen to the crap being pumped out over the mainstream radio waves anymore. While some rebel rockers come across as simply angry airheads lacking in substance, artists like Michael Franti and Paris, featured in this film, are the epitome of what music should be: passion, message, inspiration, fun. Their great music combined with their intelligent reflection and their refusal to pander to the big corporate music mafia like most of the big money 'artists' out there is part of what makes them true artists, and I hope everyone who watches this film will support them and others like them. Kudos to the filmmakers for telling their story. Would love to see more specifically on the inner workings of the toxic music and media industry.
