let fury

have the hour

by Antonino D'Ambrosio

The film looks at the surge of art, music, and writing that came to be as a result of the conservative ideals of the 1980’s Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher political era. 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.
