About the film:
Powerhouse music industry couple Ray Chew -music director for ABC’s “Dancing with The Stars”-, and Vivian Scott Chew - an innovative figure in the global music and entertainment world - assemble an all-star collection of American and Cuban musicians—from upstart rappers and DJs to veteran cantadores, in this stirring, hip-shaking testament to the unifying power of music from directors Bille Woodruff and Sara Nesson.

“We the People: Required Watching” is MSP Film Society’s ongoing screening presenting films that spark discussions about social justice, followed by conversations with filmmakers, scholars, and activists about ways to affect positive change in our communities.
