Protesting the Dixie Chicks

Documentarian Christopher Fleeger followed the Chicks’ 2003 arena tour all over the country, recording the thoughts of the sign-carrying folks who gathered outside the shows to protest or support the controversial trio. The result is an artful, melancholy film that nicely complements last year’s brilliant Chicks documentary Shut Up and Sing (which depicted what was going on backstage inside those same arenas). Protesting demonstrates how one country star’s offhand remark ignited a passionate argument about the meaning of freedom and patriotism.
