RUMBLE: THE INDIANS WHO ROCKED THE WORLD
Sat, Sep 23 1:30 PM (102 min)
Acclaimed at our inaugural Doclands Film Festival, this revelatory documentary explores the role of Native Americans in popular music history. Focusing on such icons as Link Wray, Jimi Hendrix, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Charley Patton, Mildred Bailey, Jesse Ed Davis, Robbie Robertson and Randy Castillo, the film illustrates the distinctive mark that artists with indigenous heritage have made on the music of our lives. Their stories are told by some of America’s greatest music legends who knew them, played music with them and were inspired by them, including Buddy Guy, Quincy Jones, Tony Bennett, Iggy Pop, Steven Tyler and Stevie Van Zandt, among others. American popular music has always had Native American influence, but these contributions have been left out of the story…until now. Directors: Catherine Bainbridge, Alfonso Maiorana. (Canada 2017) 102 min.

VICEROY'S HOUSE
Sat, Sep 23 3:15 PM (106 min)
In 1947, Lord Mountbatten (Hugh Bonneville) is dispatched to India with wife Edwina (Gillian Anderson) to oversee the country’s transition from British rule to independence. Moving into the resplendent New Delhi mansion known as the Viceroy’s House, they hope for a peaceful transition of power. However, ending centuries of colonial rule is not easy in a country divided by deep religious and cultural differences, especially with growing support for Partition of a new country called Pakistan. Director Gurinder Chadha (Bend It Like Beckham) vividly recreates the era with visual splendor, but she also refreshingly focuses on the folks “downstairs”: the Hindus, Muslims and Sikh staff most affected by the outcome. With Michael Gambon, Manish Dayal, Huma Qureshi, Om Puri. Music: A.R. Rahman. Writers: Paul Mayeda Berges, Gurinder Chadha, Moira Buffini. Director: Gurinder Chadha. (UK 2017) 107 min.

DOLORES
Sat, Sep 23 6:15 PM (95 min)
Among the most important, yet least known, activists in American history, Dolores Huerta was an equal partner with Cesar Chavez in co-founding the first farm workers’ unions. Dolores tirelessly led the fight for racial and labor justice alongside Chavez, becoming one of the most defiant feminists of the 20th century, and at age 87, she continues the fight to this day. This long-overdue film portrait is an eye-opener, as we witness Huerta’s career spanning not only the labor movement, but also the fight for civil rights and the evolution of feminism, all the while raising 11 children. Executive producer Carlos Santana lends some great music to this stirring film. In English and in Spanish with English subtitles. Producers: Brian Benson, Peter Bratt. Writer/Director: Peter Bratt. (US 2017) 98 min.
