Soundtrack for revolution closes the 12th MFF
The film “Soundtrack for revolution” closes this year’s festival. The word is about the film made by American pair of directors Bill Guttentag and Dan Sturman. The film makes us familiar with the new performances of the songs about the freedom performed by the top-quality artists, including John Legend, Joss Stone, Wyclef Jean and The Roots, with the use of the archive recordings. The film also shows the interviews with the fighters for the human rights and their leaders, including the congressman John Lewis, Harry Belafonte, Julian Bond and the ambassador Andrew Young. The songs for freedom originate from the melodies of the slaves, from the worker’s movement and especially the black church. The music has enabled the African Americans to sing the words they weren’t able to say, and that was the crucial help to the protestors when they stood up against the brutal aggression with dignity and non-violence. The infectious energy of the songs carried the people and gave them the strength to fight for their rights.
