The Sound Strike is a coalition of Artists that have committed to supporting the International Boycott of Arizona in the wake of the passage of SB 1070. The film includes interviews with Zack De La Rocha, Conor Oberst, Rodrigo and Gabriela and Eugene Hutz, members of the Sound Strike. 

The Sound Strike was co-founded by Marco Amador of Producciones Cimarrón.

The film explores the rise of hate groups like “FAIR” and how organizations such as the Southern Poverty law center are tracking their growth and influence on Arizona’s political landscape. The film seeks to remind the audience that the immigration industrial complex has had an important role in the creation of laws like SB1070 not only in Arizona but also throughout the country.
