GO. SEE. THIS. MOVIE!
I was very blessed to be able to see it on Thursday at the premiere of the Amnesty International Film Festival. The film by Summer Love (awesome name eh?) was really inspiring and just what I needed to see. I hadn’t really listened to Anti-Flag or NOFX before but I am now inclined to start. Lately I have been really trying to find the envelope pushers, those that care about the world and want to make a difference… maybe I need to go to more concerts? haha.
The movie explored social activism through music and they ways in which music is controlled and distributed today. Michael Franti was featured. That dude is so awesome.
Music has a way of reaching people. I was at school working late one night and a dude started playing guitar in the corner, it was so soothing. With music we can really reach people. I think we all have a song. And it is so crucial that we sing.
If you get a chance to check out the rest of the AIF Festival in Vancouver or to see Sounds like a Revolution… do it!
OH! And this song has been stuck in my head ever since I watched the movie. SO good!
