SYNOPSIS:
Justin Sane will perform following the Friday night screening. Justin is the founding member of the seminal punk band Anti-Flag. Sane is a founding member of the non-profit Military Free Zone. He has worked with Amnesty International, Green Peace, PETA and numerous other organizations.

“Sounds Like a Revolution” is a powerful reminder that music is still a voice for protest and defiance. The film harkens back to the 1960s when music sparked a generation of youth to rise up in dissent against the Vietnam War.

Artists across the musical spectrum recount their motivations and struggles in a post-9/11 environment where dissent was silenced and censorship was commonplace. "Sounds Like a Revolution" presents a unique historical perspective behind the new wave of protest music sweeping America and offers new hope for the future.

Featuring interviews with David Crosby, Ani Difranco, Pete Seeger and Henry Rollins, “Sounds Like a Revolution” focuses on the music and work of today's politically-minded musicians, including Michael Franti, the Dixie Chicks and Paris, who, despite the daunting obstacles placed in their way, continue to motivate and inspire America’s youth for a positive revolutionary change. (Michael Burke)

BIO:
Summer Love (Naomi Preney) gained a foothold in film as a researcher and producer. Her unconventional style helped secure her place as Canada's "it" girl for fresh, edgy pop culture as she went on to produce several short documentaries showcasing up-and-coming Canadian fashion designers and musicians Ÿ a series that was broadcast internationally on the German public television station, WDR.

Her lifelong political activism, coupled with an education in political science, helped ignite a passion for documentaries early on and reinforced her commitment to making genuine and thought-provoking films on her own. As the driving force behind Deltatime Productions, she heads up a team of creative talent whose passion for music and politics helped create her first feature documentary, "Sounds Like a Revolution" Ÿa pro-active and energizing film about a new wave of protest sweeping America.

Jane Michener started her career in Prague producing short films with local artists. After returning to Toronto in 1999, Jane started Petersburg Films with director Jay Fields. Since then, Michener has produced several internationally award-winning short films. Her most recent short "Desastre," premiered at Toronto's International Film Festival, was screened to critical acclaim at the Palm Springs Short Film Festival, broadcast across the nation on CBC's Canadian Reflections series and garnered her a Genie nomination.

MIchener's documentary career started with a serendipitous encounter with "Sounds Like a Revolution's" director Summer Love. Together they created Deltatime Productions and embarked on an adventure of a lifetime. Jane is currently producing a 35mm short film in partnership with Bravo television and is in development of her first dramatic feature.
