This award-winning, feature-length film (produced by John Summa and directed by John Travers) documents the extraordinary life and legacy of iconic Chilean singer-songwriter, Victor Jara, executed in 1973 following a right-wing military coup.
Cast includes members of legendary music groups Quilapayún and Inti-Illimani, plus artists Angel Parra, Judy Collins, Bono, Arlo Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Bernardo Palombo, León Gieco, and Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul & Mary).
The first part of the film explores, through friends and family, Victor’s music, life and the social context in which he emerges as a leader of a vanguard cultural movement for social change in Chile, South America.
The second part of the film captures the coup and post-coup periods, and Victor’s profound impact on activists, artists and musicians of all ages inside and outside Chile, featuring moving footage of his reburial in 2009 in Chile.
