Who’s Gonna Save You?
“”This change in the weather will burn us, then we’ll freeze,” sings Robby Romero, “there’s a point of no return; we’ve got to face reality. “Those are just some of the striking lyrics from “Who’s Gonna Save You… Thoughts from Hopi Elders, recording artists and street artists—including the infamously artsy Brit vandal Banksy—are also featured in the flick.”
– Santa Fe Reporter
