In recognition of the National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, we invite you to join us for a screening of Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World. Rumble is a 2017 feature-length documentary film about Indigenous performers, composers and other contributors to the evolution of rock music. Directed by Catherine Bainbridge, a Canadian actor, producer, director and founder of Rezolution Pictures.

Following the screening, we will discuss how RUMBLE highlights Indigenous contributions to the evolution of popular music and explore how the film works toward dismantling Indigenous erasure. We will consider explore how RUMBLE challenges settler perceptions of what Indigenous music is and what it can be.

Co-presented by the Faculty of Information and Media Studies and the Don Wright Faculty of Music.
