If you’re into documentaries about artists, you’re in luck! The upcoming documentary, “Let Fury Have The Hour,” from director Antonino D’Ambrosio, chronicles how a generation of artists, thinkers, and activists channeled their creativity into an organized response and resistance to the reactionary politics that increasingly defined American culture in the 1980s.

The film, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, features interviews with over 50 powerful, of-the-moment voices including street artist Shepard Fairey, comedian Lewis Black, musicians Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine) and Chuck D (Public Enemy), and filmmaker John Sayles.

The film is released in New York City on December 14th, and in Los Angeles on January 25th. Other cities will be announced soon.

CAST INCLUDES: Eve Ensler, Lewis Black, John Sayles, Shepard Fairey, Chuck D, Van Jones, Tom Morello, Wayne Kramer, Billy Bragg, Ian MacKaye, D.J. Spooky, Hari Kunzru, Tommy Guerrero, Edwidge Danticat, Suheir Hammad

The synopsis of the film is about how the counter-culture has influenced us in 2012:

“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 musicians Tom 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.”
