Rough, raw, and unapologetically inspirational, Let Fury Have the Hour is a charged journey into the heart of the creative counter-culture in 2012. In a time of global challenge and big questions, this upbeat, outspoken film tracks the story of the artists, writers, thinkers, and musicians who have gone underground to re-imagine the world--particularly equality, community, and engaged creativity--in exuberantly paradigm-busting ways. Writer/director Antonino D'Ambrosio unites 50 powerful, of-the-moment voices--from street artist Shepard Fairey to comic Lewis Black--who share personal and powerful tales of how they transformed anger and angst into provocative art and ideas. Mix-mastered with historical footage, animation and performances, the film delivers a visceral portrait of a generation looking to revamp a system that has failed to address the most pressing problems of our times. The story begins in the 1980s with the rise of Reagan and Thatcher--and a cultural shift towards fierce individualism and rampant consumerism. Coming of age in a world seemingly gone mad, a group of kids started searching for something more authentic. They ultimately formed their own renegade movement, a hybrid, haphazard collective of skateboarders, punk rockers, rappers, street poets, feminists, and graffiti artists whose reaction to this brave new world was not to turn away, but to turn up the volume and have their say. Now that generation is coming to the fore, sparking a global movement focused not just on pushing the boundaries with guitars, paint, dance, storytelling, graphics, and subcultural style--but on coming together around real reasons for hope
Mayday : the art of Shepard Fairey by Jeffrey Deitch( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The final exhibition before the closing of New York's seminal Deitch Projects, May Day is simultaneously a call for heightened awareness and a celebration of the rebirth embodied in revolutionary movements. May Day presents an evocative collection of paintings from one of the most important artists of our time. Portraits of advocates of the working class and oppressed define the collection. Fairey stakes the claim that artists, musicians and writers such as Joe Strummer, Jean Michel Basquiat and Cornel West all have parts to play in stimulating response to injustice. With energy and urgency befitting the title May Day, Fairey captures the radical spirit of his subjects. Says Fairey, "These people I'm portraying were all revolutionary, in one sense or another. They started out on the margins of culture and ended up changing the mainstream. When we celebrate big steps that were made in the past, it reminds us that big steps can be made in the future."--Pub. desc

Let Fury Have the Hour( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Joe Strummer's untimely death at the age of fifty in December 2002 took from us one of the truly unique voices of modern music. The quintessential Rude Boy, punker, rebel musician, artist and activist, Strummer wrote some of the most important and influential music of the last century including "Guns of Brixton," "The Washington Bullets," "Spanish Bombs," "White Man in Hammersmith Palace," "London's Burning," "Lost in the Supermarket," and "Garageland." Effectively melding raw creativity with radical politics, Strummer transformed punk rock from its early associations with reactionary, right wing and nihilistic politics into a social movement. From Rock Against Racism to the Anti-Nazi League Festival to supporting the H-Block protests, Strummer and The Clash led the charge for human rights. Let Fury Have the Hour collects articles, interviews, essays and reviews that chronicle Strummer's life both as a musician and a political activist. Included in this collection are essays and interviews by Antonino D'Ambrosio, alongside contributions from Peter Silverton, Barry Miles, Anya Philips, Sylvia Simmons, Vic Garbarini, Caroline Coons, Todd Martens, Joel Schalit and others. This book also includes original lyrics, photography, art, posters, and flyers, and offers the first serious examination of the life of this extraordinary man
