LOS ANGELES: The exclusive Los Angeles engagement LET FURY HAVE THE HOUR movie looks at the last 40 years of social history to make the case for activism and creative response as an antidote to cynicism. The film features interviews with a variety of musicians, artists, and activists who share personal and powerful tales of how they transformed anger and angst into provocative art and ideas (including street artist Shepard Fairey, musicians Tom Morello and Billy Bragg, filmmaker John Sayles, and comic Lewis Black.
Rough, raw and unapologetically inspirational, LET FURY HAVE THE HOUR is a charged journey into the heart of the creative counter-culture in 2012. In a time of global challenges, big questions and by the numbers politics, this upbeat, outspoken film tracks the story of the artists, writers, thinkers and musicians who have gone underground to re-imagine the world honing in on equality, community and engaged creativity in exuberantly paradigm busting ways.
Writer/director Antonino D'Ambrosio unites 50 powerful, of the-moment voices from street artist Shepard Fairey to rapper Chuck D to playwright Eve Ensler to musiciansTom Morello and Billy Bragg to novelist Edwidge Danticat to filmmaker John Sayles to comic Lewis Black -who share personal and powerful tales of how they transformed anger and angst into provocative art and ideas. Mix-mastered with historical footage, animation and performances, D'Ambrosio presents a visceral portrait of a generation looking to re-jigger a system that has failed to address the most pressing problems of our times . . . or human potential.
