California Typewriter is a story about people whose lives are connected by typewriters. The film is a meditation on creativity and technology featuring Tom Hanks, John Mayer, Sam Shepard, David McCullough and others.
This powerful documentary about the role of Native Americans in contemporary music history-featuring some of the greatest music stars of our time-exposes a critical missing chapter, revealing how indigenous musicians helped shape the soundtracks of our lives and, through their contributions, influenced popular culture.
'Rumble' - obviously named after the classic Link Wray track - supposedly tells the story of the American Natives in rock, and then shows some artists who never saw themselves as anything but musicians, and possibly Americans. And say what you will - but WHEN did Buffy Sainte-Marie ever rock?
Also the movie left out the first, true rocking Native American Band; Granicus. Although with mainly Italian family names (so what - Hendrix/Hendricks is a Dutch name...), these Cleveland guys rocked when Grand Funk sucked, and their eponymous 1973 album has become a cult classic among heavy rock fans the world over. There were even talks of a reunion in 2016.
