A call to action, the short story goes… In the 1980s, a generation of artists used their creativity to respond to the reactionary politics that came to define the culture at the time. In director Antonino D Ambrosio’s Let Fury Have The Hour, over 50 notable musicians, artists, and thinkers are brought together to trace a social history from the cynical heydays of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, to today, ultimately imparting a message of hope.
The indie documentary, which includes commentary from the likes of Chuck D, Van Jones, Suheir Hammad, John Sayles, and more than 50 others, will see a limited USA theatrical release starting this Friday, December 14, in NYC and January 25th in LA.
Additional cities will be announced later.
The film is a CAVU Pictures release.
