NEW DOCUMENTARY SCREENING TO KICK-OFF WTJU FOLK MUSIC MARATHON, Saturday May 7th at 8 pm.
Sounds Like a Revolution is pro-active and an energizing documentary about a new generation of activist musicians who are living proof that music is an important and powerful tool in the ongoing struggle for social change. From the Dixie Chicks to Paris, Michael Franti and Anti-Flag, artists across the musical spectrum discuss their motivations and struggles in a post-9/11 environment when dissent was silenced and media outlets either ignored them or forced them into self-censorship before their material was released.
With themes that explore the role of artists in society, freedom of expression and democratic participation, Sounds Like a Revolution tells a universal story of how we are all politicized by the increasingly dangerous world in which we live, and begs the question: Will you stand up for truth or turn and walk away?
As a kickoff to the 91.1 WTJU Folk Music Marathon fundraiser SOUNDS LIKE A REVOLUTION will be screened at Random Row on Saturday, May 7th at 8 PM. Doors will open at 7:30.
