Description

London’s calling! It’s the 1970s, punk rock is exploding, and Britain is deeply divided over immigration and the rapid growth of far-right extremism. Calling for music to be a force against xenophobia, a motley crew of mavericks banded together with The Clash and other top rockers of the day to create one of the biggest civil rights movements in British history. Think Woodstock, meets the March on Washington. Amid ongoing protests against racial injustice, Rubika Shah’s spirited tribute to Rock Against Racism hits a resonant note, reminding us of a moment when music changed the world, and a generation challenged the status quo.
