Informative, Inspiring, beautiful
19 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to attend the first ever showing of Artifact at the Ryerson for TIFF. This documentary is an inspiring documentary about fighting for what is right. It not only is informative about the music industry it is also beautifully made. It takes the audience on a journey of struggle against a corporate machine and into the compromise that must happen in order for MARS to continue to do what they love, which results in a magnificent documentary and also the creation of the epic album This is War. Anyone who sees this will walk away with a new found respect for what a musician goes through to create the music that enhances our lives.
