MUST SEE MUSIC DOCS!

Support independent Canadian cinemas closed due to COVID-19. Proceeds from the virtual ticket purchases will help sustain programming and support efforts to reopen participating theatres.


WHITE RIOT
Award-winning music doc about late-70s
UK anti-racism movement ft. The Clash & Steel Pulse 


White Riot is a moment in time when music changed the world. When a generation challenged the status quo. It’s Woodstock meets the March on Washington, punk-style.

Limited virtual cinema Screenings until August 6th
Rent it for $9.99 via Hot Docs Cinema 

Britain, late-1970s. Punk is exploding. The country is deeply divided over immigration. The National Front, a far-right and fascist political party, is gaining strength as politicians like Enoch Powell push a xenophobic agenda. Outraged by a racist speech from Eric Clapton, music photographer Red Saunders writes a letter to the music press, calling for rock to be a force against racism. NME, Melody Maker, and Sounds all publish the letter.

Flooded with responses, Red discovers many share his views. Teaming up with like-minded creatives Roger Huddle, Kate Webb, Syd Shelton and Australian graphic designer Ruth Gregory, the team bands together to create Rock Against Racism (RAR) and a fanzine, Temporary Hoarding. Speaking directly to the youth, Temporary Hoarding reports stories and issues that the mainstream British media ignores, like immigration, the Catholic side of the Northern Ireland conflict, and the police’s controversial “suspected persons” (sus) powers. They give a voice to the voiceless. The National Front begins to strike back, committing acts of violence against RAR supporters and petrol-bombing their HQ. Despite this, RAR spreads virally across the UK and into Europe, becoming a grassroots youth movement. The Clash, Steel Pulse, Tom Robinson and other top bands of the day jump on board.

CREEM:
America’s Only Rock n Roll Magazine
The history of rock ‘n’ roll publication Creem magazine -from its humble beginnings in Detroit to its growing popularity and ultimate demise.
Ripping back the curtain on legendary rock rag CREEM Magazine’s wild and disruptive newsroom; a dysfunctional band of unruly outsiders who weren’t all that different from the artists they covered.  

Featuring appearances from Alice Cooper, Cameron Crowe, Joan Jett, Michael Stipe, KISS, Kirk Hammett, Thurston Moore, Chad Smith and many more  
Watch the wild movie trailer:

Limited virtual cinema Screenings until August 20th
Rent it for $9.99 via Independent Cinema


Capturing the messy upheaval of the ’70s just as rock was re-inventing itself, the film explores Creem Magazine’s humble beginnings in post-riot Detroit, follows its upward trajectory from underground paper to national powerhouse, then bears witness to its imminent demise following the tragic and untimely deaths of its visionary publisher, Barry Kramer, and its most famous alum and genius clown prince, Lester Bangs, a year later. Fifty years after publishing its first issue, “America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine” remains a seditious spirit in music and culture.“An upside to documenting this historic publication is that we get to see the vast community that was formed within and around the magazine’s culture. While Rolling Stone was pushing James Taylor to teens, Creem was galvanizing the renegades by covering outsiders like Iggy Pop and Alice Cooper. Countless misfits rallied around Creem’s flag and went on to do wild and creative things of their own, and that in itself is a story worth sharing.

White Riot and CREEM are distributed in Canada by FilmsWeLike in association with Hollywood Suite
