White Riot | RSFF 2020

March 16, 2020

“The Clash’s visceral punk anthem is an apt title for this passionate tribute to the grassroots movement Rock Against Racism, which countered the surge of the British neo-Nazi National Front in the 1970s. In a turbulent time of social unrest and unemployment, easy scapegoats were the fading Empire’s immigrant communities – Afro-Caribbean, Asian – with prejudice fueled by both politicians and out-of-touch rock stars (Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart). Enter an impromptu coalition of anti-fascist political groups, radical reggae, and punk bands (Steel Pulse, X-Ray Spex, The Clash) and determined music fans, who came together for a concert of defiance and deterrence. Expanding on her acclaimed short film of the same title, Rubika Shah’s feature documentary brings the past vividly to life. contemporary eye-witness testimonies, archive footage, a stirring soundtrack and energized, DIY collage-style of video, photo, and graphics recall the era’s underground music ‘zine scene. An inspirational retelling of cultural resistance, all-too relevant to troubled modern times.”
