‘Rockin’ The Wall’

By J.T. Ryder

As a prelude to the 2nd annual Ohio Liberty Film Festival slated for November, Jay Tieber, owner of the Dublin Pub, presents yet another film that defines freedom: Rockin’ The Wall. Written and co-produced by UD history professor Larry Schweikart (shown), this documentary showcases the role that music played in the destruction (both literally and figuratively) of the Berlin Wall as told by the musicians that had a hand in tearing down the Iron Curtain with heavy metal. While it is widely regarded that the deconstruction of the Berlin Wall was due to the pressure exerted by Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul II, little regard is given to the role that “subversive” rock and roll music played. Rockin’ The Wall had a world premiere screening last week in Washington, D.C. and will premiere locally Thursday, September 16 at the Engineers Club of Dayton, 110 E. Monument Ave. A VIP reception will be held at 6 p.m. followed by the screening at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door; $7 pre-sold at the Dublin Pub, 300 Wayne Ave. Reception tickets are available by calling Brian Bennett at (937) 572-1337. For additional information, call (937) 321-5823 or visit online at
