"SOUNDTRACK FOR A REVOLUTION": New Civil Rights Film a Musical/Historical Trip!

Hot Docs' monthly screening series, Doc Soup, is screening the feature documentary, SOUNDTRACK FOR A REVOLUTION (USA, 82 MIN) by filmmakers Bill Guttentag and Dan Sturman (NANKING, Hot Docs 2007 selection; TWIN TOWERS,2003 Academy Award winner). Bill will be in attendance on Wednesday.

I had a chance to speak to director, Bill Gutenttentag today about the film: the music that inspired and motivated a generation of young political activists who were part of the Civil Right's Movement in the US, the current roster of musicians who re-interpret songs from the era, and Danny Glover's role as Executive Director. My interview with Bill will air on Saturday, February 20th at 1pm on CIUT 89.5 FM or www.ciut.fm.

Check out the Doc Soup screening Wednesday for a new look at the Movement and the music.
