Let Fury Have the Hour - Feature Documentary Teaser


Current Affairs, History, Social Issues, Society, and Arts

Let Fury Have the Hour investigates the movement of World Citizenship as an antidote to the reactionary global politics that have come to divide and separate communities worldwide. The film follows creative activists (those using art/ culture as a vehicle for activism and social engagement), as they advance this movement throughout the world.

Using mixed media, graphic art, design, music, and animation, the film covers the last three decades which now define our current political and cultural environment. The film presents punk, street art, skateboarding and hip-hop as the creative-responses that countered these reactionary politics, and helped define a new movement that thrives today.

This film features interviews, performances, and artwork by Chuck D of Public Enemy, Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, director John Sayles, comedian Lewis Black, street artist Shepard Fairey, author Eve Ensler, environmentalist Van Jones, Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat, among many, many others.
