Politics and Popular Music: Shut Up & Sing

Director Barbara Kopple's documentary on the politics of the Dixie Chicks is slated to hit theatres shortly. Film critics seem to be giving the film rave reviews. Kopple is perhaps best know for her 1990 film American Dream, documenting the plight of striking Hormel workers in Minnesota. If her new film is anywhere near as good as American Dream, you won't want to miss it.
