MVD Visual and Sexy Intellectual are pleased to announce the DVD release of Revolution In The Head – Rage Against The Machine and the Art Of Protest on February 23, 2010.

Arguably the most provocative band of the last 20 years, Rage Against The Machine have since their explosive debut, been the group most associated with the American protest movement. Picking up the flame from a linear musical tradition going back to the War Of Independence, with the best known protagonists coming up during the 1950s and 60s civil rights movement via artists such as Pete Segar and the young Bob Dylan, the anger remained as brutal as ever during the final decade of the 20th Century in Rage and contemporaries like Public Enemy.

This film dissects the work and career of RATM and looks at their place in this always fascinating lineage of artists and performers who have spoken out on behalf of, and drawn attention to, the world’s marginalised, downtrodden and oppressed.

FEATURING brand new interviews with:
– Renowned producer and engineer, Garth Richardson
– RATM Biographer, Colin Devenish
– The band’s live sound engineer, Dave ‘Rat’ Levine
– Plus the man who signed them, Michael Goldstone

With further contributions from folk-protest singer and author Jerry Silverman, ex-Rolling Stone editor Joe Levy, and Professor of American Studies and English at Washington State University, T.V. Reed.
