RUMBLE: THE INDIANS WHO ROCKED THE WORLD
Director: Catherine Bainbridge & Alfonso Maiorana
Running Time: 104 minutes
In collaboration with Canada Now.
CANADA NOW 2018 is a showcase of New Canadian Cinema – featuring nine outstanding pieces of bold independent filmmaking that will begin a nationwide tour of cinemas and venues across the UK & Ireland commencing on Sunday July 1st, in celebration of Canada Day.
RUMBLE: THE INDIANS WHO ROCKED THE WORLD explores the oft-neglected history of musicians of First Nations descent whose work and ancestry has yet to be adequately acknowledged and honoured – particularly their integral influence on the birth of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Stretching back a century to the work of groundbreaking blues musician Charlie Patton, whose Indigenous ancestry was often glossed over in favour of other narratives, the documentary covers an extraordinary amount of ground. Along the way there are some startling revelations and some seriously kick-ass tunes.
“In the end, the story is one not only of rock- and pop-culture history, but of human persistence and indigenous contributions that have been historically (and often intentionally) overlooked.” – The Globe and Mail
Winner of the World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Masterful Storytelling at Sundance 2017
