Exclusive week-long Bay Area premiere at the historic BALBOA THEATRE beginning January 18th with opening weekend discussions with filmmaker Antonino D’Ambrosio, Sean Hayes and other special guests presented by San Francisco’s Noise Pop

Antonino D’Ambrosio’s critically acclaimed documentary film Let Fury Have The Hour will have an exclusive week-long run at the historic Balboa Theatre in San Francisco starting Jan 18th. The film premiered earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival, and is being released by NY-based indie distribution company CAVU Pictures, which opened the film in theatres beginning in New York City on Dec 14th.

Rough, raw and unapologetically inspirational, filmmaker Antonino D'Ambrosio's Let Fury Have the Hour is a lively social history that chronicles how creative-response is an antidote to the cynicism that dominates today's culture. An exuberant, mixed media collage that incorporates graphic art, music, animation, and spoken word, the film spans three decades of transformation bringing together over 50 artists, writers, musicians, skateboarders, dancers, and rights advocates (from street artist Shepard Fairey to rapper Chuck D to playwright Eve Ensler to musicians Tom Morello, Ian MacKaye, Billy Bragg, Wayne Kramer and Eugene Hutz, to novelists Edwidge Danticat and Hari Kunzru to filmmaker John Sayles to comic Lewis Black to environmentalist Van Jones to poet Suheir Hammad), all of whom attest to the fact that we can re-imagine the world we live in and take an active role in making that vision a reality.

The film also features interviews with several prominent Bay Area artists including singer-songwriter Sean Hayes, legendary skateboarder and musician Tommy Guerrero, and Boots Riley, the founder of seminal political hip-hop group The Coup and lynch-pin of the Occupy Oakland movement.

Set to a stirring soundtrack from the film’s artists – including Public Enemy, Billy Bragg, Gogol Bordello, MC5, DJ Spooky and Sean Hayes – LET FURY HAVE THE HOUR is a fast and furious trip into the grass roots of art and activism, 21st Century style.
