Video: 'Idle No More: The Next Generation'


The filmmakers who brought you the documentary on an Idle No More rally in Seattle are back and have upped the ante with "Idle No More: The Next Generation."

The vivid clip focuses on young people, in keeping with its theme of concern for the coming generation, at an Idle No More rally on the U.S.-Canada border. Many wear colorful regalia and pound away on hand drums. The audio track is "Letter to My Countrymen" by Brother Ali. Ali and this video's director, Dave Wilson, have collaborated in the past and are connected through the Rhymesayers label. Ali approved the use of the song in the video.

The clip was produced by Gyasi Ross and Brodie Stevens in association with Idle No More -- North West Coastal -- their previous video can be seen here.
