Ithaca Premiere. Free w/ panel discussion.
2017 > USA > Directed by Catherine Bainbridge, Alfonso Maiorana
With Mildred Bailey, Randy Castillo, George Clinton
In 1958 guitarist Link Wray's (Shawnee) single "Rumble" introduced the power chord, and was banned on several radio stations. Bainbridge and Maiorana (Reel Injun) use this moment as their departure for this riveting doc of indigenous contributions to rock n' roll, featuring footage of Jimi Hendrix, Charley Patton, The Band's Robbie Robertson, and others with Native American heritage. More at rumblethemovie.co. Sponsored by the American Indian and Indigenous Studies Program and the Native American Law Students Association.
