Latin American icon Rubén Blades is one of the most beloved singer-songwriters of his generation.
In the 1970s his socially charged lyrics and explosive rhythms introduced salsa music to an international audience. Blades won 17 Grammys, acted in Hollywood, earned a law degree from Harvard and even ran for president in his native Panama.
He opens up with unusual candor in this absorbing documentary. In Spanish and English with English subtitles.
Director: Abner Benaim. 85 min.
