Rage Against the Machine Explore the Origins of 'Killing in the Name' in New Documentary

18 Jan 2021

Rage Against the Machine have released a short film, Killing in Thy Name. The film, directed by Ummah Chroma, explores 'the fiction known as whiteness'. Through archive footage and scenes of a teacher educating children about the history of race in America, the film explores ideas surrounding what it means to be white, set against 'Killing in the Name' as the soundtrack. The film is a new medium for the band, giving viewers further insight into their politics. Killing in Thy Name also features quotes from prominent historians as well as the band members themselves:

'My mom [Mary Morello] is a white woman with a radical voice. For three decades she was a progressive teacher in a conservative high school inspiring students to challenge the system - in her actions and words she has always taught that racism must never be ignored and must always be confronted.' - Tom Morello

In Tom Morello's new photo memoir, Whatever It Takes, Morello takes a look back at the band's most famous song and the rise to fame that followed. The limited edition is available to pre-order now, with an update on shipping to be sent to subscribers via email this week
