Rumble: Indians Who Rocked the World–Music Docu

RUMBLE: THE INDIANS WHO ROCKED THE WORLD is a powerful musical docu about the role of Native Americans in contemporary music, featuring some of the greatest music stars of our time.

The docu consists of first-person interviews, audio clips, and concert footage.

RUMBLE had its world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Fest, where it won the festival’s World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Masterful Storytelling.

The docu will open July 26, 2017, at New York’s Film Forum – before a national expansion during the summer, including a full awards-qualifying release at Landmark’s NUART Theatre in Los Angeles starting August 25, 2017.

Written and directed by Catherine Bainbridge (Reel Injun), written and co-directed by Alfonso Maiorana, and Executive Produced by Stevie Salas and Tim Johnson, RUMBLE exposes a critical missing chapter of Rock history, revealing how Indigenous musicians helped shape the soundtracks of many generations.

The film stars Link Wray, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Robbie Robertson, Jesse Ed Davis, Jimi Hendrix, Randy Castillo, Taboo, Martin Scorsese, Quincy Jones, Steven Tyler, Steven Van Zandt, Iggy Pop, Tony Bennett, George Clinton, Slash, Taylor Hawkins, Robert Trujillo, and many more.

“Catherine Bainbridge & Alfonso Maiorana’s RUMBLE brings back the contributions of Native Americans and indigenous musicians to their rightful place in music history. The film is also a thrilling and beautifully constructed documentary, so it’s bound to appeal to audiences of all ages and backgrounds, nationwide.” – Richard Lorber, CEO Kino Lorber

“This whole film happened because I was playing sold out arenas and stadiums with Rod Stewart and while on the road across America I started to wonder why there were no other Native Americans in the biz. Then I discovered there were indeed others who, for reasons unknown to me, people didn’t know about.” – Stevie Salas, Executive Producer
