With everything from the Arab Spring, to Occupy Wall Street, to the protests that are still ongoing in Egypt, the topic of democracy, revolution and change has been at the forefront of many conversations.

Let Fury Have The Hour Tom Morello

With everything from the Arab Spring, to Occupy Wall Street, to the protests that are still ongoing in Egypt, the topic of democracy, revolution and change has been at the forefront of many conversations. And there is perhaps no better time for the documentary "Let Fury Have The Hour," an exploration of the artistic response that comes in the wake of oppressive political climates.

The feature directorial debut from acclaimed author, visual artist, and filmmaker Antonino D’Ambrosio chronicles how a generation of artists, thinkers and activists used their creativity -- and their creations -- as a response to the reactionary politics that came to define 1980s culture. To help tell the story, D'Ambrosio rounded up an array of folks including John Sayles, Chuck D, Shepard Fairey, Lewis Black, Ian MacKaye, Billy Bragg and many more to talk about how the heyday of Reagan and Thatcher informed their creative output. Also sharing his experiences is Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello, who in this exclusive clip explains how it's the power of the people that invokes massive change, not politicians.

"Let Fury Have The Hour" opens in select theaters on December 14th. Watch the clip below.
