Celebrate Native American Heritage Month with the award-winning documentary, Rumble, which details Native American contributions to rock and roll music. Through captivating performances and eye-opening interviews with a who’s-who list of music legends, including Steven Tyler, Slash, Tony Bennett, Steven Van Zandt, and many more,Rumble uncovers the until-now unknown history of how indigenous music and musicians help shape the soundtrack of American popular culture. Rumble will be screened with the short film Jaaji Approx., a dreamy contemplation of the filmmaker’s relationship with his father, told through beautiful shots of landscape and recordings of the father speaking in his native Ho-Chunk language.
