Storyline

In his feature directorial debut, acclaimed author, visual artist, and filmmaker Antonino D'Ambrosio has fashioned a lively social history that chronicles how a generation of artists, thinkers, and activists used their creativity-and their creations-as a response to the reactionary politics that came to define our culture in the 1980s. An exuberant, mixed media collage that incorporates graphic art, music, animation, and spoken word, the film spans three decades of change--from the cynical heyday of Reagan and Thatcher through today-- and brings together over 50 writers, playwrights, painters, poets, skateboarders, dancers, musicians, and rights advocates, all of whom attest to the fact that we can re-imagine the world we live in and take an active role in making that vision a reality.

Groundbreaking and inspiring!
19 February 2013 | by adamzenko-483-173694See all my reviews

"Let Fury Have the Hour" is an incredibly powerful and honest documentary that speaks to anyone frustrated by the direction society has taken over the last three decades.

Almost all documentaries nowadays deal with a single topic -- fracking, global warming, tort reform, the war on drugs, gun control, etc. But this rule that only one subject matter should be addressed is achingly familiar, sometimes boring, and long overdue to be broken.

"Let Fury Have the Hour" gloriously defies this convention. It is simply so much bigger in terms of scope, theme, and argument, that many reviewers habituated in seeing lone trees are no longer able to appreciate an entire forest.

By providing an unique snapshot of working artists from a variety of fields from 1980 to the present day, D'Ambrosio's film simply accomplishes what no other does, and as such, it will certainly stand the test of time. It is an excellent film with a great soundtrack that is best seen theatrically to fully appreciate it.
