Film explores Native Americans in rock



MOUNT DESERT — “Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World,” the final film in the Native American Film Series, will be shown at the Northeast Harbor Library on Wednesday, April 18, at 5 p.m.

This recent film, directed by Catherine Bainbridge and Alfonso Maiorana, is about the impact of Native Americans on American rock music. It documents musicians not commonly known as Native American, being easier to pass as black than Native American in the music business in America.

The film lasts 102 minutes and will be followed by a discussion led by Judith Blank regarding whether the audience agrees with the movie’s assertion.
