This feature-length 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.
