This attempt at documenting a broad social history behind a wide range of popular music from the 1980s till now consists of an exuberant mixed-media collage incorporating art, music, animation and performance. The film brings together 50 writers, playwrights, painters, poets, skateboarders, dancers, musicians and rights advocates, each revealing that we can re-imagine the world we live in and take an active role in making that vision a reality.
When D'Ambrosio first wrote a book under the same title, he mostly focussed on The Clash’s Joe Strummer. Now his canvas is so broad, he seems a bit all-over-the-place. And while clearly preaching to the converted, individual soundbites like, 'It's about being for something, not against it' or 'We are all born citizens of the world' of course keep their relevance, even when coming from a 'leftist hobbyist'.
