The Movie: RTD Right To Dance

RTD Right To Dance

'Now what I contend is that my body is my own, at least I have always so regarded it. If I do harm through my experimenting with it, it is I who suffers, not the state.' - Mark Twain

From the year between 1992 to 1993, a great underground rave culture began to transform in the City of Denver, Colorado, USA. The promoters responsible for this happening were Mike “E”, The Messiah, and The Energy Posse so called names that they went by.

Chuck Harris musically became exposed to it and witnessed a cat and mouse game between the promoters and the heavy handed Denver Police. Chuck Harris decided that this was an historic story happening that needed to be documented and so he filmed 42 hours of footage over that one year period. It comes to no surprise that in the end, the Denver Police had won, but not without a documented happening event. This is the story of the promoters and the ravers of the metropolitan City of Denver. It was their right to dance.

Alice in Raveland

Details:

The first Rave we started to video tape was a Rave called Alice in Raveland. The promoter Mike "E" opened the door for us to begin documenting this cat and mouse game between the Ravers and the Denver police. When we arrived early at the Rave, the police had already infiltrated the location and shut it down. Promoter Mike "E" was determined not to be beat by the police so he decided to make another map point, and change the rave location to the warehouse which he and his artist roommate "Vile" lived. Surrounded by consistent police surveillance and driveby's, the Rave went on without a hitch, but for only the people who knew.

The RTD series was shot over a period of a year from 1992 to 1993 when the rave scene began to flourish in Denver as well as throughout the world, and became a 7 part series. Part 7, is broken into three parts, a, b, and c, because this was the ultimate Rave located on a private 5200 acre ranch in Boulder which lasted until 10am the following day. All parts are roughly an hour each.
