Rumble The Indians Who Rocked the World
Rumble The Indians Who Rocked the World – In Montrealer Catherine Bainbridge’s previous documentary “Reel Injun”, she chronicled the contribution of Native Americans to the movie industry in Hollywood from the early days of motion pictures right up to the present.
In her latest documentary “Rumble”, she focuses her attention to the Native American influence in pop culture, this time in the world of popular music. Winner of the World Cinema Documentary Special Jury Award for Masterful Storytelling at the Sundance Film Festival and the best Canadian documentary award at the Hot Docs festival, “Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World” traces the history of the Native American influence in pop music since 1958, when American Indian singer/songwriter and guitarist released his popular instrumental single “Rumble”. Produced by Rezolution Pictures, this 102-minute documentary into this seldom told aspect of rock music history includes appearances by such figures as Link Wray, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Robbie Robertson, Quincy Jones, Steve Tyler, Iggy Pop, Steven Van Zandt, Tony Bennett and Martin Scorsese.
“Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World” is now playing a limited engagement at the Cinema du Parc (located at Avenue du Parc and Prince Arthur) until September 14.
