Talking About a Musical Revolution

Sounds Like a Revolution is an inspiring documentary about the current state of protest and activist music. Featuring interviews with the likes of David Crosby, Henry Rollins, Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, and Fat Mike from NOFX, the film is educational, entertaining, and full of moments that will leave music fans in awe (hearing Crosby talk about sitting beside Neil Young as he wrote “Ohio”, his song about the shootings at Kent State on May 4, 1970, is so powerful that it gave me goosebumps).

Toronto-based director of Sounds Like a Revolution, Summer Love, took time out of her NXNE schedule last week (where the film had its world premiere) to speak with CityNews.ca about why she wanted to make the film now and what she hopes people take away from it. Watch the full interview below.

Sounds Like a Revolution opens in Toronto on June 25 at The Royal. Radio DJ Alan Cross (The Ongoing History of New Music, ExploreMusic) will introduce the screening on June 25 at 7 p.m. with the filmmakers in attendance for a Q&A afterward. The screenings on June 26 and 27 will feature an acoustic performance by Justin Sane of Anti-Flag as well as Q&A’s with the filmmakers. For more information, visit soundslikearevolution.com.
