Artists Creating Interactive Democracy
With an exhilarating mash-up of art, music, animation, and performance, filmmaker Antonino D'Ambrosio provides a visionary blueprint for a participatory society. Uniting fifty writers, painters, poets, musicians, activists, and skateboarders in a mixed media montage, the film Let Fury Have the Hour imagines how culture and politics can be transformed radically with a "creative-response." Based on D'Ambrosio's book, Let Fury Have the Hour (Nation Books) about the punk era, the film features instructive comments from such artists as Shepard Fairey, Eve Ensler, Chuck D, and Billy Bragg.
Antonino D'Ambrosio — Filmmaker, Nation Books author
Tom Morello — Guitarist for Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave; Cofounder, Axis of Justice
DJ Spooky — Hip-hop musician, conceptual artist, and writer
Geoffrey Gilmore — Director, The Tribeca Film Festival
Additional artists to be announced. After the screening, the panelists will consider the film's message in light of the upcoming presidential election and discuss concrete ways in which the seemingly impossible can become possible.
