Rough, raw and ruthlessly inspiring, LET FURY HAVE THE HOUR is a journey into the heart of the creative counterculture
The movie Let’s Fight! came out in 1971 at the Winter Olympics in Mexico City. It was produced by a team of 16 young filmmakers, including David Zeltser, whom you might recognise as the director of “Let’s Fight!”
A great documentary about the film, directed by David Zeltser. The film has pro-wrestling and boxing legend Bob Backlund narrating his experience with the film crew and making it into a feature length documentary.
“Let’s Fight!” is also featured in several American television shows including “Killer Klowns from Outer Space”, “Mystery Science Theater 3000”, and “The Simpsons”.
The movie industry has never been so grim. The movies are too dark, the films are too violent and the actors are too obsessed with sex. And they do not have time for any other work besides that to make money, because there is just so much to do on a daily basis.

#LetsFuryHaveTheHour is a book about the counterculture of 1970s and its importance in shaping the culture we live today – both in Europe and around the world. It was written by talented author, Bruce Wallace, who was also a man with an urge to fight against all odds (and literally). He suffered from asthma as a child, which gave him an urge to be different and rebel against everything he saw around him (and symbolically in his mind). With this passion he created this special book that displays his passion for creativity with stories that are quite raw (it’s like a documentary) but yet inspiring at least on a human level as well.
In the 1960s and 70s, there was a new wave of art direction and image manipulation. This movement was seen as a sort of underground art scene that was giving rise to psychedelic pop music and pop culture trends. All this had inspired many artists to create innovative styles and expressions.
There are lots of different things started in the 60s. Like flower power, happening, hippies, sex, drugs, rock-n-roll: all the things that made today’s young people rebellious! They wanted to express themselves in everything they do. The counterculture wanted to have fun and express their own feeling with their clothes and music genres. There were also technical innovations like synthesizers and pieces like Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing”.
Wagner Ono is an illustrator who worked on design projects for just one of these movements – The Rolling Stones’ album “Blue & Lonesome”. It has been said that he used his skills as an artist to avoid w
The counterculture arts of the 60s and 70s have inspired writers to think and create new ideas, new art forms and different ways of making films. The films and books produced by this time include “Easy Rider” and “Easy Rider: America’s Movie.”
The movie industry has always been the place where creativity and innovation flow. Movie-makers were not only a vehicle for bringing content to life, but also provided a strong alternative to the mainstream in terms of content.
