Artists Creating Interactive Democracy
With an exhilarating mash-up of art, music, animation, and performance, filmmaker Antonino D’Ambrosio provides a visionary blueprint for a participatory society. Uniting fifty writers, painters, poets, musicians, activists, and skateboarders in a mixed media montage, Let Fury Have the Hour imagines how culture and politics can be transformed radically with a “creative-response.” Based on D’Ambrosio’s book about the punk era, the film features instructive comments from such artists as Shepard Fairey, Eve Ensler, Chuck D, and Billy Bragg. After the screening, our panelists will consider the film’s message in light of the upcoming presidential election and discuss concrete ways in which the seemingly impossible can become possible.
