An award-winning Canadian documentary – Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World – kicks off the 2017-18 season of the Reel Shorts Movie Series on Sunday, October 1 @ 2:30pm at GPLT (Grande Prairie Live Theatre). As part of Alberta Culture Days, admission is FREE! It’s rated PG (Coarse Language, Nudity).
This powerful documentary exposes a critical missing chapter in contemporary music history – the untold story of the Native Americans who influenced blues, jazz, folk, pop, rock, and heavy metal. Featuring some of the greatest music stars of our time – Charley Patton, Mildred Bailey, Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix, Jesse Ed Davis, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Robbie Robertson, Randy Castillo, and others – it reveals the indigenous musicians who helped shape the soundtracks of our lives.
The film has won numerous awards including the World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 2017 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival, and the Best Music Documentary Film at the 2017 Boulder International Film Festival. We are able to share it with our audience thanks to our partnership with Film Circuit, presented by TIFF, and its sponsors and supporters.
