Acclaimed filmmaker Antonino D'Ambrosio's dynamic social history chronicles a generation of artists & thinkers creative-response to the reactionary politics that now defines our culture. An exuberant mixed media collage incorporating art, music, animation, and performance, the film brings together 50 writers, playwrights, painters, poets, skateboarders, dancers, musicians, and rights advocates, each revealing that we can re-imagine the world we live in and take an active role in making that vision a reality.
