Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World
Canada 2017, 103 min., documentary/music
Directors: C Bainbridge & A. Maiorana
This film is a celebratory examination of the suppressed role of Canadian and American First Nations writers and performers, and their contributions to popular music. The title comes from “Rumble”, the 1958 smash hit, instrumental single by Shawnee musician Link Wray, which was widely banned from airplay in the US.
Through dynamic archival footage, photographs and a series of fascinating interviews with a variety of pop-culture celebrities and commentators, the film finely balances biographical sketches with historical context to finally reveal this long overdue missing chapter.
