Rockin The Wall tells the story of the colappse of the USSR from a different perspective than is taught in history clases. The wall fell because of many reasons. Often overlooked is the role that rock music and Blue Jeans played in bringing down a super power.

The film by Larry Schweikart and Marc Leif is based on Schweikart's book “Seven Events That Made America America.” It shows how music become a liberating force  behind the Iron Curtain and helped give strength to the anti-communist revolution.
