This film documents the extraordinary life and legacy of iconic Chilean singer-songwriter, Victor Jara, executed in 1973 following a right-wing military coup.
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.
Join the LAII for a special film screening followed by a Q+A with the Associate Producer of the film, Dr. Juan Carlos Vallejo.
This event is free and open to the public.
