The RiverRun International Film Festival and Indie Lens Pop-Up, presented by ITVS, Independent Lens are presenting two free screenings of RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World, an electrifying look at Native American influence in popular music, despite attempts to ban, censor, and erase Indigenous culture. Both screenings will be followed by a discussion.
RUMBLE brings the music and musicians to life using innovative re-creations, archival concert footage, and interviews. Their stories are told by some of the music legends who knew them, played with them, and were inspired by them, including Robbie Robertson (Mohawk), George Clinton, Taj Mahal, Slash, Jackson Browne, Taboo (Shoshone/Mexican), Buddy Guy, Quincy Jones, Derek Trucks, Tony Bennett, Iggy Pop, Steven Tyler, and Stevie Van Zandt. Also featured are Native American poet and activist John Trudell, rock critic David Fricke, director Martin Scorsese, and many more.
