AUDIENCE AWARD WINNER for
BEST DOCUMENTARY!

–Hot Docs Fest 2017

A great rock doc and also necessary correction to the historical record, “Rumble” reveals how musicians with Indigenous roots have shaken, rattled and rolled pop culture.

They include guitar greats Jimi Hendrix, Link Wray, Charley Patton, Jesse Ed Davis and The Band’s Robbie Robertson, as well as singers Rita Coolidge, Buffy Sainte-Marie and Mildred Bailey and the rapper Taboo. Their heritage is often unknown or deliberately suppressed — often by the musicians themselves, for fear of discrimination.

The film also explores how the U.S. and Canadian governments practiced what Bainbridge calls the “deliberate erasure” of history, because they fearfully equated Indigenous music with social unrest. “Rumble” is truth you can rock to. Play it loud!

--Toronto Star
