Gimme the Power
Olallo Rubio, 2012
Mexico | Format: HDCam | 101 minutes

Gimme the Power starts by tracing the political history of Mexico, from colonization to dictatorship to democracy. Then, true to rock’s form, the band Molotov explodes on stage with critiques of the government’s policies and the state of Mexico today. Despite having won the Latin Grammy Awards four times since 1995, Molotov keeps its identity as a contentious, left-wing, protest band. Rubio’s film works off their message to create one of his own.

Series: Sound + Vision 2013
